Why we need to stop talking about twenty-first century skills and start embedding dispositions for learning in all subjects in all our schools 

As we neared the end of the twentieth century, with the Internet gaining in pace and scope, it was inevitable that we'd be thinking about what schools might look like in the new millennium. Many of us used 'twentieth-century skills' as a short-hand for a different kind of education. But the trouble is that the phrase has increasingly become an evangelical shout-out which polarises debate between knowledge and skills, often antagonising the many thoughtful teachers who do not see the debate in this binary way. In this webinar Bill Lucas urges us to move on from the rhetoric and focus on the evidence. Bill will outline some of the best frameworks for blending dispositions and habits of mind with knowledge and skill in schools.
