The 21st-century skills of Collaboration, Creativity, Communication, and Critical Thinking are important and can be avoided only at the cost of nothing. We may not decide to ignore the most pertinent factor governing human life- Educational Technology and Artificial Intelligence.

21st Century Skills for Teachers

  3. Collaboration

  • Emotional Intelligence
