The Partnership for 21st Century Skills will host a summit on 21st century learning beginning June 1.
The event, called the Cyber Summit on 21st Century Skills, will be held entirely online and will address education reform initiatives. Three forums during the event will cover recommended practices for instruction and assessment; policy and reform issues; and measurements of progress and defining and teaching 21st century skills.
The summit will also include live Webinars and pre-recorded videos focusing on best practices for integrating 21st century skills into instruction.
The Cyber Summit on 21st Century Skills will be held June 1 through June 12, leading up to the National Education Summit on 21st Century Skills, which will be held June 12 in Washington, DC. Further information can be found here.

As a result of using technology as a platform for remote learning, both teachers and administrators now place a higher valuation on the role of technology to support students’ future success.
