OK. I would be interested to see your definition of 21st century skills. It seems to me that most of the key skills that we are trying to teach are exactly the same as ever they were (see my Conclusion to the article at http://edtechnow.net/2013/01/26/industrial-revolution/).

My definition of 21st Century Skills would encompass the 'soft skills' such as communication, collaboration, leadership, team work, real problem solving, learning to learn, etc..

I would totally agree that these are not new - they were all present in the Plowden Report back in 1967 before digital technology had made any impact on schools (or even much on society more generally).
