The 21st century presented challenges and opportunities that demand certain skill set, termed 21st century skills. Technology and globalization have transformed how people perform tasks, relate to each other and their environment. Societies previously independent and industry-driven, have been significantly formatted to interdependent digitalized knowledge societies. As a result, education systems the world over have to alter their pedagogical practices in order to aptly produce employable and productive graduates. While a lot has been done to define the 21st century skills and expound their relevance, little has been done to guide classroom practitioners on how to infuse these skills in curriculum and instruction. This paper, using a desktop based critical review of six 21st century skills frameworks, sought to provide a coherent integrative 21st century skills framework for infusion of these skills in the school curriculum in an attempt to create a portrait of the learner depictive of their embodiment. The paper recommends a pedagogical practice wherein the learners complete project-based, cross-disciplinary tasks that encourage innovation and cross cultural collaboration.
