21st Century Communication Skills

Communication in Second LifeSo nice to be at home for the morning. I’m not complaining about the travel, though. METC was a blast, where I had so many mind stretching conversations with folks from Mid America. I also got to spend some time with David Jakes, Steve Dembo, Joyce Valenza and others.

This morning I got an e-mail from a friend who has been asked, by his principal, to design a class for all of their Freshmen called 21st Century Skills. He’s asking for some suggestions, which I’ve shared with him, and I’d like open it up to the smarter part of my thinking, you.

So what do you think should be part of the syllabus for a class about 21st century communication skills?
