Document Number: 10325Education for Life and Work Developing Transferable Knowledge and Skills in the 21st Century - National Research Council appointed a committee of experts to more clearly define “deeper learning” and “21st century skills,” consider these skills’ importance for positive outcomes in education, work, and other areas of life, address how to teach them, and examine related issues.
The committee found important areas where goals
for deeper learning and 21st century competencies
overlap with the new Common Core State Standards
in English language arts and mathematics and the
NRC Framework for K-12 Science Education. Findings and recommendations are detailed throughout the report. (National Research Council, July 2012)...
