Expert 21 Toolkit

21st Century Skills as an instructional model has often been misunderstood, so our team was hired to create a kit filled with engaging how-to reference materials for students. This component also served as a "Trojan horse" for teachers who were not yet secure with the six focal points of 21st Century Skills. This product became a sought-after component in the Expert 21 program. Our team conceptualized, prototyped, designed, developed, and delivered all materials. Because this component was a late addition, budget restrictions quashed our digital product concept. We revised the plan to fit the small cache of funds ultimately available. These limited funds also inspired us to create a very graphic and appropriate art program­—without an image budget, of course.
