In this episode, Josh and Andrea sit down with Dave Ross (@DavidPBLRoss), a Global Education Consultant to discuss what we are calling "21st Century Skills." What are they? How do we integrate them into our curriculum? And most importantly, how do we assess them? In this installment of the series on assessment in PBL, our hosts and their guest address just that. At 2:53, they define 21st century skills and discuss why it is so important to integrate these into curriculum and assess them. At 7:34, they talk about 21st century skills within the context of the PBL classroom and what it looks like to weave this assessment within the PBL framework. At 10:38, they try to find the balance of assessing 21st century skills and classroom content, and how to design a project to elicit particular skills. At 14:53, Dave Ross leaves our veteran PBL teachers with a challenge to take their assessment to the next level. For tips and resources on PBL rubrics, check out the Magnify Learning Resources page.
