We have loads of resources... We could make a resources page for each type. How about that?!
Books, Wikis, Websites, Blogs, Podcasts, articles...
About BLOGS ***There is a really cool feature in this wiki that gets blogs to feed right here. So all members could use this as your 21st Century learning portal and come for a quick glance of what people are talking about. Five are CO blogs/info are already on the NEWS tab in the top. That is all they will allow there, but I could add more on a blog page too.
Do you find this valuable?

I took the liberty of reorganizing this page to reflect the myriad resources, forums, and discussions available on the world wide web with regard to 21st Century skills and learning. I put the existing posts under websites/articles, but if they need to be moved to another category, that would be great. If you can think of other categories, that would be cool as well. I posted the blogs and wikis that I follow - I tried to focus on those that consistently conduct discussions and share resources for and about 21st Century Learning and Teaching. The discussion is global and vast, I don't pretend to know a fraction of what is out there. One way tht we can establish a web presence is to start commenting on other wikis and blogs and leave a link back to this wiki. I did add this site's link to the Moving Forward Wiki.
