Understanding and Integrating the 4Cs in Your Classroom – What Does the Research Say?


Screen Shot 2015-09-21 at 1.21.28 PMWhat does research tell us about implementing the 4Cs — Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity — in the classroom? The 4Cs form the heart of P21’s Framework for 21st Century Learning, used by hundreds of schools around the country. This edWeb webinar, hosted by the Partners in 21st Century Learning community, summarized in plain language the findings of P21’s recently released “4Cs Research Series.” P21 Executive Director, Helen Soulé, and Jonathan Plucker, Neag Endowed Professor of Education at The University of Connecticut, presented fresh ideas and recommendations on how best to integrate the most essential 21st century learning skills into the classroom. Attendees learned how each of the 4Cs enhance student learning, gained research-backed methods for using the 4Cs, and discovered cutting-edge assessments to help evaluate student progress in the 4Cs. The webinar is recommended for all PreK-12 educators.
