21st Century Skills - lucky 7

Gallup recently worked with Microsoft Partners in Learning and the Pearson Foundation to develop a 21st Century Skills index that measured seven areas:
   -knowledge construction
   -skilled communication
   -global awareness
   -real-world problem solving
   -technology in learning.
There has been an increased demand to prepare young people with these skills to meet the demands of today's knowledge-based, technology driven, and globalized workplace.

Here's a video suggesting "The 7 Killer skills every 21st century Student Should Have" 

"A change principle, which is also a design principle, involves stripping away the non-essentials or distractors".  - Michael Fullan
What would you strip away?

The Substitution Augmentation Modification Redefinition Model offers a method of seeing how computer technology might impact teaching and learning.  It also shows a progression that adopters of educational technology often follow as they progress through teaching and learning with technology.  

How do we advance our teaching using technology to the Transformational levels?
