In 2007 NETS issued a series of six performance indicators (only the first four are on their website as of 2016):

  • Creativity and Innovation
  • Communication and Collaboration
  • Research and Information Fluency
  • Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making
  • Digital Citizenship

Educational Structure


Global Movement

21st century skills comprise skills, abilities, and learning Dispositions that have been identified as being required for success in 21st century society and Workplaces by educators, business leaders, academics, and governmental agencies. This is part of a growing international movement focusing on the skills required for students to master in preparation for success in a rapidly changing, Digital Society. Many of these skills are also associated with Deeper Learning, which is based on mastering skills such as Analytic Reasoning, complex Problem Solving, and teamwork. These skills differ from traditional academic skills in that they are not primarily knowledge-based content.

ICT Literacy Panel Digital Literacy Standards (2007)
