How are science and 21 st century skills related

How are Science and 21st Century Skills Related?

  • Science is not only a body of accepted knowledge, but also the processes that lead to this knowledge.

    • Engaging students in scientific processes—including talk and argument, modeling and representation, and learning from investigations—builds science proficiency (National Research Council, 2007).

  • At the same time, this engagement may develop 21st century skills.

    • For example, developing and presenting an argument based on empirical evidence, as well as posing appropriate questions about others’ arguments, may develop complex communication skills and non-routine problem-solving skills.


Science process skills

Science Process Skills

There are two ways to familiarize yourself with these skills:

1. Click on the Quizlet icon and try Scatter or the Space Race for some real fun.

2. Open the pdf document and review the terms in more detail.

21st Century Skills

You have two choices to familiarize yourself with these skills:

Click on the image to go to an interactive model of these skills provided by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills.

Open the pdf document and review the terms.

Edutopia Video Clip of Science and Creative Problem Solving

Edutopia Video Clip of Science and Cross-Cultural Skills

Edutopia’s videos provide great examples of how these skills are addressed in classroom lessons. Please view both videos. NOTE: Examples from other content areas may be found at Snapshots.

Assignment

Assignment

  • Choose one of the four units presented in the earlier slides (or any other unit found on the Intel Education Websites).

  • Conduct a critical review of the unit plan and resources.

  • Prepare and post your unit plan review summary in the Blackboard Discussion Forum: Slice 1: Unit Plan Summary. 

  • Be sure to include the following information. 

    • Identify the name, grade level, and URL of the unit

    • State the essential question and briefly describe two student activities.

    • Summarize whether the unit meets few, some, or most Project Characteristics (see embedded document “Project Characteristics Checklist).

    • Explain how the unit helps develop at least one science process skill and one 21st century skill. (NOTE: If you are NOT a science teacher, you do not have to identify a science process skill.) Use the documents “Science Process Skills” and “21st Century Skills” embedded in earlier slides.

    • Rate the unit for use in your future classroom:  1 (I likely won't use it), 2 (I might use it), 3 (I will definitely use it).  Justify your rating.

  • When finished, please read and respond to at least one other review summary. When possible, choose posts that have not yet received feedback.
