Almost every district has a mission statement that focuses on creating 21st century learners as a desired outcome. Participants will learn about the process and results of a middle school exit performance that required students to demonstrate essential 21st century skills through an authentic transfer task. These skills include the ability to be self-directed while also working within a diverse team, creatively and practically sole a complex global issue, and leverage technology to present and communicate effectively with an authentic outside audience through Skype or teleconference. This workshop will model how to design assessments that promote global awareness and responsibility, develop information and digital literacy, while also measuring whether students are meeting critical skills that are often stated but rarely assessed.
