This study addressed key questions about LA's BEST afterschool students' self-efficacy, collaboration, and communication skills. We compared student perceptions of their own 21st century skills to external outcome measures including the California Standardized Test (CST), attendance, and teacher ratings. We found a substantial relationship between student self-efficacy compared to student oral communication and collaboration skills. However, we did not find that higher attendance in LA's BEST led to higher self-efficacy, though further investigation is needed. We found that LA's BEST students were able to evaluate their abilities so that they are similar to the outcome measures of CST and teacher ratings. Moreover, the high-attendance group demonstrated significantly better alignment with the teacher ratings than the lower attendance groups in self-efficacy, oral communication skills, and collaboration skills. Appended are: (1) Propensity Weighting Process; and (2) Survey Scales. (Contains 14 tables, 7 figures and 5 footnotes.).

In this 21st century, technological and social changes have never been as rapid as before, and educative practices must evolve and innovate to keep up. What is being done by educators today to prepare future global citizens? What are the skills and competencies that will be required by our students? What changes in how we approach education might need to be made? This book presents a modern focus on some significant issues in teaching, learning, and research that are valuable in preparing students for the 21st century. The book discusses these issues in four sections. The first section presents contemporary, innovative curriculum and pedagogical practices that are relevant for the 21st century. This also includes how social networking has an integrated role within current educative practice. The next section then explores issues and current research around motivation and engagement, and how these are changing in this era of technological and social change. The third section presents debates around inclusion and social contexts, both global and local. Finally, the fourth section explores current discourses in regard to internationalisation and globalisation and how these are being considered in educational research. The book is an important representation of some of the work currently being done for these rapidly changing times. It will appeal to academics, researchers, teacher educators, educational administrators, teachers and anyone interested in preparing students for a modern and globally interconnected world.

Shift happens: Emerging technologies and globalization have resulted in political, social and cultural changes. These changes have a profound impact on all aspects of human life, including education. Yet while society has changed and continues to change, schools are slow to keep up. This book explores issues related to transforming and modernizing our educational systems, including the impact of societal shifts on education, the efforts at various levels to bring schools into the 21st century, the identification of 21st century skills, the reformation of the curriculum, the creation of alternative models of schooling, the innovative use of technology in education, and many others. It addresses questions like the following: Should schools systems adapt to better meet the needs of tomorrow’s world and how should this be accomplished? How can society better prepare students for a changing and challenging modern world? What skills do students need to lead successful lives and become productive citizens in the 21st century? How can educators create learning environments that are relevant and meaningful for digital natives? How can the school curriculum be made more rigorous to meet the needs of the 21st century? This book encourages readers to transcend the limits of their own educational experience, to think beyond familiar notions of schooling, instruction and curriculum, to consider how to best structure learning so that it will benefit future generations. It encourages a deeper analysis of the existing education system and offers practical insights into future directions focused on preparing students with 21st century skills.

This book describes the kind of education system that is needed for the future. The text originated with a study that involved 21 leaders in business, education, government, and other fields who identified more than 250 characteristics that would enhance schools' capability in preparing students for a global knowledge/information age. Followup surveys asked participants to prioritize the 250 items and gauge the items' potential impact on student learning. Chapter 1 presents 16 major characteristics developed after a thorough review of the entire study. Some of these characteristics include "All students have equal opportunity for an outstanding education, with adequate funding, no matter where they live,""Educators are driven by high expectations and clear, challenging standards that are widely understood by students, families and communities," and "Students learn to think, reason and make sound decisions and demonstrate values inherent in a democracy." Chapters 2 through 11 review specific characteristics identified in each of 12 categories. These chapters present explanations of eight or more characteristics that were rated highest in the survey. Chapter 12 offers suggestions about how school leaders might put this research to work in their communities. The conclusion of most chapters or sections includes a listing of additional characteristics identified by the original 21 community leaders. (RJM)
