Contents Re-defining 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: telling it like it is -- Toppling the king that is content -- Critical thinking: show me! -- Creative innovation: something new from something old -- Confidence: dare to fail -- A report card for the 21st century.
Summary 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.
