What Does “Tech Ready” Really Mean?

We call this generation of learners digital citizens. But three years of data gathered from learning.com’s 21st Century Skills Assessments suggests that the softer side of 21st-century skills, like critical thinking and problem solving, are lacking. Some details:

* 73% of students exhibit a positive attitude toward using technology that supports learning, but only 34% can process data and report results.

* 64% can exhibit leadership for digital citizenship, but just 34% can process data and report results and only 38% can plan strategies to guide inquiry.

* 66% can demonstrate personal responsibility for lifelong learning, but just 33% can collect and analyze data to identify solutions and make informed decisions; just 46% are able to process data and report results.
