Breakdown: 21st Century Learning

21st Century Learning has been cited as the hallmark of how educators can develop the skills students will need for their future careers, life, and higher education. In our first installment of Breakdown, Teach For America in collaboration with Chicago International Charter Schools (CICS) will define 21st century learning and explore how alumni are leveraging 21st century learning practices to reimagine what's possible for students.
