Students break into applause as the young presenter standing at the front of the class finishes describing their artwork to the group. You ask the class, "Does anyone have any questions or comments?" Eager hands immediately shoot up. Asking a student in the front row, they comment, "I like the color you chose." Heads nod in agreement. You make a quick note on your iPad about the 21st Century Skills that the students are displaying and move on to the next student waiting to present.
