What are 4Cs?
The Partnership for 21st century learning categorizes the 4Cs as Learning and Innovation Skills. Learning and innovation skills increasingly are being recognized as the skills that separate students who are prepared for increasingly complex life and work environments in the 21st century, and those who are not. The 4Cs focus on Creativity, Critical thinking, Communication and Collaboration. These are essential to prepare students for the future.
How did this come about?
P21’s Framework for 21st Century Learning was developed with input from teachers, education experts, and business leaders to define and illustrate the skills and knowledge students need to succeed in work, life and citizenship, as well as the support systems necessary for 21st century learning outcomes. It has been used by thousands of educators and hundreds of schools in the U.S. and abroad to put 21st century skills at the center of learning.
