These 21st Century Skills Maps are the result of hundreds of hours of research, development and feedback from educators and business leaders across the nation in each content area. The 21st Century Partnership has issued maps for the core subject areas, including World Languages. These maps or tools are available at the P21 website and have been made available on this page for easy access.

These NCDPI Future-Ready or 21st Century graphics are available here as posters and/or for use in training materials, such as slide decks.
