Building 21st century competencies (21CC) in our students is crucial to prepare them for a future which requires them not only to be masters in their own fields but to be navigators in an uncertain economy. While MOE has provided clear standards and benchmarks for schools through the 21CC Framework and lesson exemplars, teachers may not possess the metalanguage when it comes to 21CC and what needs to go into the explicit design of 21CC lessons.

Crescent Girls’ School (CGS) embarked on a journey to design for 21CC explicitly in our curriculum in 2012, when we collaborated with Stanford Research Institute, SRI (International), to develop all teachers in the use of a learning design framework called 21st Century Learning Design (21CLD). This framework has been used in a longitudinal research project with several countries and one of the key findings is that innovative teaching practices take place only if they have been explicitly designed for. 21CLD provides step-by-step rubrics for design of lessons which develop 21CC like Collaboration, Knowledge Construction, Skilled Communication, Real-World Problem Solving and Global Awareness, which are mapped to the MOE 21CC Framework. As part of continual professional learning on the use of technology for teaching and learning for all staff, the school has developed a cloud-based portal that empowers teachers to co-create 21CLD lessons.

This 21CLD portal foregrounds the 21CLD rubrics in the context of lesson design, thereby enabling teachers to deliberately incorporate lesson features that develop specific 21CC. With collaborative features built in, it has already been used in the co-creation of 21CC learning experiences within the S2 cluster, and in national platforms like the Digital Age Learning Conference held at Crescent Girls’ School. This portal offers the potential of facilitating ground-up collaboration and strengthening a collegial culture of continual ICT-enabled learning among teachers through the establishment of Networked Learning Communities.

 

This workshop takes participants through the 21CLD framework and unpacks one of the dimensions - collaboration. Participants can also expect to experience the co-creation of a 21CLD lesson with likeminded 21st century educators, with the goal of igniting a 21CLD Networked Learning Community, beyond CGS, the cluster, with or without the use of the 21CLD Portal.
