It’s 2019. So why do 21st-century skills still matter?

We hear more and more about how important 21st-century skills are for all learners as they prepare for future careers.  At Scoutlier, we're especially interested in helping provide tools and support teachers in gathering evidence of learning and improving student outcomes as they practice the 21st-century learning skills, or 4C's in a repetitive and consistent way.  From Empowering Students with 21st Century Skills - Getting Smart:  ". . . At a time when our civic life feels strained, we want our learners to enter the world with an understanding of what it takes to be a good citizen—one who can be civically engaged, critically thinking, digitally literate, globally aware, and an effective communicator."
