Teaching with the Tools Kids Really Use: Learning With Web and Mobile Technologies by Susan Brooks-Young

Lets start with Chapter 1:

Chapter 1 discusses what 21st century skills really are. I enjoyed this chapter because of 1 single page. There is a small block on page 6 that is one of the best definitions of what 21st century skills are. The author sums it up as follows, "The content knowledge and applied skills that today's students need to master to thrive in a continually evolving workplace and society" Every time I speak about what 21st century skills are, I talk about the standards and try to explain it. From now on, this is how I will explain it to people. If I get nothing more from this book, I will be happy.
