21st Century Education 

21:21 is a documentary film produced by 21 Foundation to highlight the urgent need for the adoption of 21st century learning methods.
In the film, which was shot in schools in 9 countries, Learning Activist and 21 Foundation founder Patrick Newell highlights the problems with traditional teaching techniques, before introducing a number of fundamental elements of 21st century leaning – and demonstrating the positive effect that they have upon learners from all backgrounds.”
