21st Century Skills

Janice Friesen‘s article, Giving Students 21st Century Skills in Multimedia Schools (2003) gives a quick a dirty look at the need for a new kind of assignment in school.  She highlights some of the advantages of the Big Six research method and mentions a few starting resources, including James Mackenzie’s FNO. This article is a great place to start for a teacher looking to improve their project design and avoid the ‘cut and paste’ plagiarist.
