About the Camp
This program gives teachers from any discipline or student age group the tools to build 21st century skills into their lessons. In addition, it provides a common language and framework to help teachers build complementary skill development opportunities across the curriculum, and provides a process for ongoing teacher collaboration around 21st century instructional design.
The core of 21CLD is a hands-on workshop to introduce the dimensions of 21CLD and then to allow teachers to try out the ideas in their classrooms and discuss the results. In the work-shop setting, teachers work together using research-based definitions, rubrics, and lesson examples to recognize and design instruction that supports

Behind the Research
There is growing agreement in many countries that students need more than rote subject matter understanding to succeed in this
rapidly-changing world: instead, they need to be skilled at collaborating, constructing deep subject-matter knowledge, solving real-world
problems, using information and communication technologies (ICT) in powerful ways, and a host of other “21st century skills” that
traditional schooling mod-els rarely promote. 21CLD helps teachers build opportunities for students to develop these skills in their
classroom. The tools and frame-works of 21CLD are rooted in a multinational SRI-led research program called ITL (Innovative Teaching and Learning) Re-search and in decades of learning sciences research on how teaching strategies can enable more powerful subject matter Learning.
