School leaders face the immediate challenges of raising student achievement while also preparing students for success in a digital age. While test scores are a highly visible measure of a limited subset of skills, they leave invisible other crucial thinking, communication, and application skills students need upon graduation. The visible thinking process provides a practical pathway for developing 21st century skills and simultaneously strengthening student core subject-area learning, by seeing both how and what students are thinking. It also allows educators to implement research-based, evidence-based practice to strengthen and assess the ISTE NETS-Standards. In this course, educators learn to incorporate tasks that include questions designed to cause students to think in 21st century ways. Educators also learn a process for making this thinking visible for reflection by students and teachers and to see evidence of mastery of 21st century skills.
