An Amazing online resource for 21st Century Learners

The 21st Century Fluency Project

A collaborative initiative created to develop exceptional educational resources to assist in transforming learning to be relevant to life in the 21st century.

The 21st Century Fluency Project is all about change. In today’s world we face technological applications in daily living the likes of which, even a few short years ago, would have been inconceivable. This is a digital age, with interactive devices storing and recording our life experience and containing overwhelming amounts of knowledge. This has become the essence of life in the 21st Century, but more specifically the lives of our children. As students, they have a whole new way of thinking and learning that many educators are unable to understand, and that most schools are unable to accommodate. That’s where we come in.

The 21st Century Fluency Project is a collaborative initiative that was created to develop exceptional educational resources to assist in transforming learning to be relevant to life in the 21st century. Our mission is simple – to instill awareness of the importance of the change that is happening today, to help educators understand the need to “catch up” to today’s students by re-evaluating current instructional and assessment methods, and to provide guidance in how to make change a beneficial thing for both student and teacher.

Change is necessary, to be sure. Unfortunately it can be a difficult concept to grasp, and even more so to put in motion. With this in mind, we’re proud to present several resources to help with the challenge of change, from books and handouts to video to a series of interactive curriculum integration kits. All these tools are designed to accompany you in your journey forward as you gain a better understanding of what’s happening in our digital world.
