21st Century skills, soft skills, non cognitive skills... there are many different terms used to describe the types of things we know our learners need beyond academics, but we often don't know how to define them let alone how to embed them into instruction. This video tackles both what the skills are and how schools can go about infusing them into the classroom.

This video talks about all the different ways the term, "21st Century Skills" is often used nationally and in Iowa. Then, it offers a few suggestions for how to embed these types of skills into the school, through things like the Portrait of a Graduate process, as well as the classroom level ideas so learners can regularly experience them as part of their education.

It’s human nature. But there are occasions when it’s ok to turn down an interview request. This module will cover how to prepare for an interview… and how to get the news to cover the good things happening inside your schools.
