A misconception of 21st Century Skills is the incorporation of technology into learning, but 21st Century Skills is much more than just technology. 21st Century Skills is about learning material in a new manner that incorporates collaboration, creativity, innovation in creating new knowledge and understanding of material. The incorporation of technology is an important piece of this learning, but is much more than a stand-alone issue.
