Episode 2: Unlocking The Eight Core Competencies to Support Online Learning


In this episode, we continue our discussion of the book written by Robinson and Aronica Creative Schools: The Grassroots. Our focus in this session is on the second set of the 8 C’s Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, and Critical Thinking which are essential traits to instruction and building leadership capacity in students. The authors state that these skills are pillars of learning and pathways to student mastery in the 21st Century. As teachers purposefully incorporate Creativity into instruction we explore what is required of the learner when measuring student achievement. During this period of COVID 19, what steps are teachers imploring to emphasize the importance of effective communication during a period of crisis?  How are educators promoting best practices for Collaboration? These and other questions will be answered on this episode of 21st Century Teaching Skills.  Writers: Stacie Boudrie, Dr. Micheal Milstead, and William Jeffery Producers: Stacie Boudrie, Dr. Micheal Milstead, and William Jeffery Music used in this episode was authorized by the following: Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/ad1e4411 Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/b9bb917b Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/ad1e4411 Materials referenced: “Creative Schools” should focus on these 8 C’s.
