21C Learning & CO State Standards
Colorado State Standards mandated to include 21st Century Skills! Get involved!At the past few State Library meetings that I have attended, there has been much conversation about how to go about infusing AASL’s Standards for the 21st Century Learner into the Colorado State Standards. I've just finished an intense week of immersion in the review process for the Colorado State Content Standards. The State Board of Education and CDE are currently revising all thirteen model content standards in order to modernize and refresh the standards. All content standards are required to update the standards to include 21st Century skills, postsecondary readiness, workforce readiness, and school readiness. 11 regional forums have taken place to solicit community, business, and educator input as how to define those topics. I believe that it is imperative for us to be as involved in this process. The reform of the state standards to include 21st Century Skills is the first step to true education reform in the state of Colorado.
Ways to participate and stay informed:
CDE had a third party consultant, WestEd, analyze and gather data to define 21st Century skills, postsecondary readiness, workforce readiness, and school readiness.

These resources are great and I am excited to see that action is being taken to reform education in Colorado. I do wonder; however, how this will be received and approached by districts and by schools who don't see the correlation between thinking skills and increased achievement on CSAP. I would be interested to see how these skills will be incorporated into the standards and how they will be assessed. This is exciting!
