ICT Literacy Maps
ICT Literacy Maps illustrate the intersection between Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Literacy and core academic subjects including geography, math, English, and science. The maps enable educators to gain concrete examples of how ICT Literacy can be integrated into core subjects, while making the teaching and learning of core subjects more relevant to the demands of the 21st century.
Route 21 is offered by the Partnership for 21st Centural Skills, as a one-stop-shop for 21st century skills-related information, resources and community tools.
Route 21 Snapshots illustrate how 21st century skills are being taught and learned in classrooms today. Each of these snapshots contains several distinct examples of how a particular skill is being taught in the context of a core subject or 21st century theme.

video clips by Edutopia--produced by the George Lucas Educational Foundation. These videos provide a detailed look at these innovative classroom environments.
