Kristen DiCerbo, Pearson, Vice President of Teaching and Learning Research & Design
“Soft skills” or “21st century skills” are critically important for school, work, and life success. However, it isn't always clear how to define them, much less how to teach them. This session will present what we know about how skills like collaboration, communication, and self-management can be taught alongside discipline-specific content, so learners are better prepared for the future.
