21st Century Learning Educational Framework

21st Century Learning, a leading nation-wide partner of after-school programs, has created a framework that breaks learning down into four major categories: 1. Key Subjects, 2. Learning & Innovation Skills, 3. Information, Framework-copyrightedMedia & Technology Skills, and 4. Life & Career Skills.

As explained on 21st Century Learning’s website, this frame work “was developed with input from teachers, education experts, and business leaders to define and illustrate the skills and knowledge students need to succeed in work, life and citizenship, as well as the support systems necessary for 21st century learning outcomes.”

So, which is the best after-school or summer program for your child? A program that provides a balanced approach to education and allows your child to grow in all of these areas.
