What are the elements of 21st Century Learning?

What does it mean to implement and support teaching practices for the 21st Century? I believe that the idea of having technology involved in every aspect of the learning environment is not realistic or necessary. A strong foundation of basic literacy and numeracy is vital to the future success of young learners as well as developing a sense of empowerment in the present. Problem solving, sharing ideas, creating ways to show understanding, and working with others to discuss what is relevant are just some of the terms that I use to define what will hopefully become the “norm” in schools and everywhere else.
