Do your students possess the 21st century skills needed for learning, working, and living in the 21st-century? Are your 21st-century learners prepared to problem-solve, critically think, collaborate, and get creative when the world demands it? Do your students possess job ready career skills?

If the answer is not "yes" to any of these questions, it's a great time to help your students begin building these soft skills for college and career readiness.

The intention of this 21st-century skill-building portfolio is to help students develop 21st-century competencies that are important for college and career readiness. This resource is great for advisories, life skills classes, college and career ready programs, AVID, and senior seminars.

This 21st-century skill-building portfolio s a prepared template that guides students through the process of mastering 21st-century skills. Students...

  • Make 21st-century skills goals
  • Organize and plan 21st-century skill-building activities
  • Reflect on skill-building experiences

This is how it works:

  1. Students examine essential 21st-century goals and determine a few specific goals to focus on over the course of a session (school year, quarter, semester, etc.)
  2. Students explore learning opportunities (activities, projects, field trips, etc.) that will help them master the 21st-century skills that they chose as their focus for the session.
  3. Students participate in those learning activities and then reflect on the experiences using the templates included in this resource. The reflections or journal entries act as evidence of skill-building experiences.
  4. The end result is a portfolio that showcases evidence of 21st-century skill-building experiences.

For example, if a student would like to focus their goals and energy this quarter on tech literacy they might plan to attend a free webinar on how to use a specific software program.

Once they have completed the webinar, they would go into their 21st-century skill-building portfolio and write a reflection and add video or photographic evidence of that experience. They would also reflect on how this experience helped them with tech literacy. The end result would be several entries that showcase tech-literacy-building experiences that the student had that session.
