    What are the twenty-first-century learning skills that we can integrate in undergraduate education? There are at least four major skills as follows:

    1. Critical thinking
    2. Communication
    3. Collaboration
    4. Creativity

    Moreover, undergraduate students need to develop higher-order thinking skills such as creativity and synthesizing in order to be well-prepared for navigating the twenty-first century and success.

    \(\PageIndex{1}\). Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)

    • SLO 29.01: Apply the best practices for learning about student learning
    • SLO 29.02: Describe the characteristics of how learning works
    • SLO 29.03: Describe the characteristics of online learning
    • SLO 29.04: Describe the characteristics of in-person learning
    • SLO 29.05: Identify given plant species with their scientific names based on their key features
    • SLO 29.06: Describe the characteristics of hybrid learning
    • SLO 29.07: Explain classroom technology in the new era of learning

    \(\PageIndex{2}\). Big Picture


    \(\PageIndex{3}\). Test Your Knowledge

    • Assessment 1: TRUE or FALSE: Growing plants help students learn valuable skills and concentrate.
    • Assessment 2: Multimedia tools such as videos improve learning. Why?
    • Assessment 3: TRUE or FALSE: US phone numbers are 7-digits because of the fact that human short-term memory can hold max 7 digits.
    • Assessment 4: TRUE or FALSE: Human can remember 65% info as image while 10% as a text.

    \(\PageIndex{4}\). Can You Spot These Plants?


    \(\PageIndex{5}\). Check Your Answers
