Never doubt that a small group of committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

Welcome to the Wikispace for Kimberly Kludt, 21st Century Skills Coach for the Brookings School District. My primary duty is to help teachers modify current practice in order to incorporate 21st Century learning strategies for their students. Skills such as Critical Thinking and Problem Solving are necessary for students living in the 21st Century. In addition to providing assistance with 21st Century Skills, I will support teachers in greater utilization of 21st Century tools such as wikis, blogs, and online research. Beyond providing professional development in 21st Century skills and tools, I work with teachers and administrators in data analysis, curriculum alignment, and other professional development topics (see list to left). The majority of my time will be spent within the Brookings School District; however, I will spend a portion of my year assisting teachers in Castlewood, Deubrook, Elkton, and Estelline.
