Abstract

To thrive as 21st century learners, students must be able to judge the quality of information, find a way through complex and disparate information, formulate their own focus and answers to their own questions, and transform information into knowledge. They need to be agile, critical thinkers who are digitally fluent, able to read complex texts and write clearly. They need to come up with creative solutions to problems they identify and to learn the skills of working in teams. These are the skills of the 21st century worker, and they are synonymous with the skills of Guided Inquiry (GI).
