The Partnership for 21st Century Skills created Route 21 - a one-stop-shop for 21st century resources and information.

The Partnership for 21st Century Skills (2009) states that developing a comprehensive framework for 21st century learning requires more than identifying specific skills, content knowledge, expertise and literacies.  An innovative support system must be created to help students master the multidimensional abilities required of them in the 21st century.  The Partnership identified five critical support systems that ensure student mastery of 21st century skills.
