    Yet another framework for an expanded vision of educational outcomes. This one while not giving up the complexity of what students need to be successful aims at providing simplified, broadly accessible language for what all students need. It mostly succeeds, but I continue to worry that we as a field are not able to gain traction because of an inability to coalesce our efforts around common language. Whether you call it 21st century skills, deeper learning, or four-dimensional education, it is Yet another framework for an expanded vision of educational outcomes. This one while not giving up the complexity of what students need to be successful aims at providing simplified, broadly accessible language for what all students need. It mostly succeeds, but I continue to worry that we as a field are not able to gain traction because of an inability to coalesce our efforts around common language. Whether you call it 21st century skills, deeper learning, or four-dimensional education, it is basically all the same thing. It is clear that our children need more than the core content and basic skills that we have traditionally been teaching. Defining the outcomes, practices that nurture those outcomes, and the assessments that provide evidence around these outcomes is essential work and all schools benefit when we can talk through a common language. I'm not sure that this is it, but I hope that it does serve to bring us together.

    This book was recommend to me at the NEASC conference in December and I just finished it. Every educator should read this book which provides a discussion about the essential competencies our students need to succeed in the 21st century. Global trends, technology,goals, and the breakdown of knowledge are defined. I particularly enjoyed Chapter 3-"The Knowledge Dimension: Knowledge-Traditional and Modern," where the authors talked about liberal arts,knowledge classifications, and then how to move This book was recommend to me at the NEASC conference in December and I just finished it. Every educator should read this book which provides a discussion about the essential competencies our students need to succeed in the 21st century. Global trends, technology,goals, and the breakdown of knowledge are defined. I particularly enjoyed Chapter 3-"The Knowledge Dimension: Knowledge-Traditional and Modern," where the authors talked about liberal arts,knowledge classifications, and then how to move to more relevant disciplines. The aspects of value, connecting people, and the use of data were highlighted. Another chapter made me reflect on the need to teach content that is valuable and job related with an emphasis on critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and what we call applied learning. Off to read more about the CCR (Center for Curriculum Redesign) who is a Prek-12 center that is the foundation for what our students in college must know.

    What should every student know? What skills should every student have? What should every teacher teach? How should we teach? These questions get examined in this book.
