The Six Competencies of 21st Century Learning
Collaboration looks at whether or not the students are working together on learning activities and examines the quality of the collaboration occurring.

Big Ideas
Students work together
Students have a shared responsibility
Students make substantive decisions together
Students' work is interdependent
Knowledge Construction
Students are required to take new information and evaluate and understand the new information. Students will use a specific skill set to help them understand new information and then apply their knowledge in different circumstances.
In order to achieve the competency of knowledge construction students will:
Problem Solving
This competency looks at whether or not the students are able to use problem solving skills and whether or not they can solve problems using data and information from the real world.
Students are to develop solutions to new problems and to complete activities that do not have instructions attached to them.
Working Together

Students are working in pairs or in groups.
Students discuss, solve, experiment, create and discover through collaboration.
Students give one another feedback and value each other's opinions.

Shared Responsibility

Students all contribute ideas and work on a common product.
Students are mutually responsible for the outcome of the activity.
Students take responsibility of certain aspects of the activity.
All students are a part of the entirety of the outcome.
Decision Making
Students make substantive decisions together.
Substantive decisions are decisions that can shape or change the outcome of the activity.
Students must use their knowledge of issues to make decisions.
Students must plan out how to complete an activity.
Students must decide the best way to present their ideas.
Interdependent Work
All students must participate fully in order for the group to succeed.
All work must be divided equitably.
Each group member is responsible for a specific task within the larger project.
All group members must agree upon all decisions that pertain to the overall product.
Each student's contributions are necessary and integral to the final product.
Catholic Graduate Expectation:
Collaborative Contributor

Students will use inferencing skills to look beyond the obvious and read between the lines of new information acquired.

Students will be able to look at the parts of a whole and determine the relationships between them.
Students will be able to compare and contrast between two or more ideas and connect many ideas together.
Students will be able to judge the quality, credibility and importance of new ideas and information.
Catholic Graduate Expectations:
Creative Thinker and Discerning Believer
Can students problem solve?
Can they come up with solutions to real world problems?
Are they innovative?
Students can solve problems by:
coming up with solutions for several outcomes of the problem
learning about and exploring possible solutions to similar problems
investigating the problem and evaluating information to come up with plausible solutions
Real World Problems are those that are experienced by real people. Students should be able to come up with solutions that can be used in real world situations, taking into account actual data and information.
Innovation: putting their ideas and solutions into practice in the real world.

Students should be able to come up with real world solutions to real world problems that can then be integrated into the real world. These solutions should benefit others outside of the classroom.
Skilled Communication
Communication is vital to all human interaction. This competency looks at whether or not students are able to communicate their ideas and information using examples and evidence to support their thinking. Students should also be challenged to present their ideas in several ways.
Self Regulation
Self Regulation is a skill that is very important in the world today.
Self Regulation includes the ability to:
monitor own work
incorporate feedback in order to improve
plan work over time
engage in long term activities
have clear goals and work to achieve them
work with minimal supervision
Use of ICT for Learning
This competency looks at HOW students use ICT.
Student use of ICT happens when ICT is used to complete some or all of a learning activity.
Students should be given the opportunity to use ICT in the completion of assignments and activities.
ICT should be able to help students and support them with the other competencies.
Catholic Graduate Expectation:

Caring Family Member
Skilled Communication includes:
multi-modal communication
providing supporting evidence
communication of ideas with sensitivity to others
communication of ideas to enhance quality of life
Multi-Modal Communication
A multi-modal communication piece includes more than one type of text or communication tool that can be used by the student to present their ideas and/or information.
Students are given the opportunity to choose their tools and modes of communication.
Students can use several different types of media.
Extended Communication
Students must come up with ideas or produce communication that connects many different ideas or pieces of information. Extended Communication is not a single thought or a single message. It is much more complex.
Extended Communication includes the use of supporting evidence.
Communicating to a Particular Audience
Students must take into account their audience when completing tasks. This will allow them to be able to use appropriate voice, word choice and information depending on the audience of their communication. Students will be able to identify the tools and the relevant information to be shared.
Students are required to communicate their ideas and/or message with sensitivity to their audience and should think about how their message will enhance the quality of life of their audience.
Catholic Graduate Expectation: Effective Communicator
Long Term Learning Activities
Long term learning activities allow students to work on their product over several class periods which in turn allows them to improve their work over multiple drafts.
Planning Their
Own Work
Students are given the opportunity to plan their own work and make decisions regarding their work.
Students are able to revise and improve upon their work based on ongoing feedback.
Catholic Graduate Expectation:
Self-Directed Learner
Are students able to use ICT for knowledge construction?
Are they able to use ICT to communicate in different ways and to support them in their learning?
Does ICT help engage the students on another level?
Catholic Graduate Expectation:
Effective Communicator
