21st Century Skills

    A self-directed program created for Ohio educators to explore and engage in web 2.0 technologies and 21st Century Learning Skills.  

   Join us in these 21 simple activities or tutorials brought to you by INFOhio, the Information Network for Ohio Schools. You will learn the tools of the second generation Internet: Web 2.0 collaborative tools that are bringing our students in touch with the entire world through social networking, wikis, video, podcasting, and gaming sites.

   There are 21 “Things” or self-directed lessons for you to complete. These “Things” offer many resources for your exploration and experimentation. They also offer opportunities to develop creative ways to use these resources to engage learners, to collaborate with other classroom teachers and librarians, and to develop a personal learning network.  Once you are registered, you can work through the “Things” with no deadline to finish. Participate for your own enjoyment or to earn credit or CEU’s.  For credit information, click here.Register and join us any time after February 1st, 2010 when we kick-off this unique learning program for educators of 21st Century learners

   This program is inspired by the Learning 2.0: 23 Things program developed by Helene Blowers at the Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County and adopted by many other libraries and organizations since then and “43 Things I might Want to Do This Year” developed by Stephen Abrams. Content and style for 21 Essential Things for 21st Century Success has been borrowed and duplicated under a Creative Commons license.  INFOhio is indebted to both Stephen Abrams and David Loertscher in the development of the INFOhio 21st Century Learning Commons. The INFOhio 21 Essential Things development was a team effort (developers and contributors).
