P21 and edWeb launch a community for educators on 21st century learning

P21 Logo Vertical Blue RGB-01edWeb.net and the Partnership for 21st Century Learning (P21) announce the launch of a free professional learning community to help teachers and school leaders learn how to build a 21st century learning environment that prepares students for the challenges of work, life and citizenship.

21st century learning skills are needed for students to thrive in a world where change is constant and learning never stops, but building a 21st century learning environment can be a challenge for both teachers and school leaders.

This new community, Partners for 21st Century Learning, will provide a forum where educators can participate in conversations on best practices, hear from exemplars of innovation, and learn about the latest research. The community will host free webinars that offer CE certificates for educators, live chats, online discussions, and a resource library.

The community will be hosting its first webinar, Understanding and Integrating the 4Cs in Your Classroom – What Does the Research Say?, on Thursday, Sep. 24 at 4 p.m. Eastern Time. It will be presented by Helen Soulé, P21 Executive Director and Jonathan Plucker, Neag Endowed Professor of Education at University of Connecticut, Register here to attend: http://ow.ly/QOrqR.

“The Partners in 21st Century Learning community will be a place to connect and communicate with practitioners who are making 21st century learning a reality for their students,” said Dr. Helen Soulé, P21 executive director. “We are excited to bring P21 resources to edWeb.”

Lisa Schmucki, founder and CEO of edWeb, commented, “edWeb members are a driving force for 21st century learning, so we couldn’t be more delighted that the Partnership for 21st Century Learning is creating a community to provide guidance for our members and all educators – on edWeb.”
