If you want to ensure that students are prepared for college and careers, you need to make certain that your classroom instruction fosters 21st century skills, including the “4Cs”—critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity—identified as competencies crucial for success in education and the workplace. Enhance the ways you teach the “4Cs” with technology by using instructional strategies described in this book. The authors emphasize rigorous uses of technology, focusing on its end-goal—improving student outcomes—rather than technology for its own sake. An in-depth discussion of how technology can promote the learning of the 4Cs and numerous practical strategies to help support the development of each subskill are included.
