Formatted Contents Note: Redefining success in the 21st century -- The learning industry and the learning sciences: how educational reform sent us in the wrong direction -- The skills needed for success are global -- Hard skills and "soft skills": finding the perfect balance -- Collaboration: no one can fiddle a symphony -- Communication: lines of connection -- Toppling the king that is content -- Critical thinking: what counts as evidence? -- Creative innovation: rearranging the old to make the new -- Confidence: dare to fail -- A report card for the 21st century.
Summary, etc.: While the U.S. economy becomes ever more information-driven, our system of education seems stuck on the idea that "content is king," neglecting other skills that 21st century citizens sorely need. Golinkoff and Hirsh-Pasek introduce the "6 Cs": collaboration, communication, content, critical thinking, creative innovation, and confidence. They also show parents ways they can nurture their children's development in each area.
