Is Creativity the Number 1 Skill for the 21st Century?

Is Creativity the Number 1 Skill for the 21st Century? | 21st Century Creative Resources | Scoop.it
Against a backdrop of uncertainty, economic turmoil and unprecedented change a new picture is emerging of the skills and traits for success (and perhaps even simply survival) in the modern era.
Linda Buckmaster's insight:

The article looks at seven themes that may convince you that creativity may well be the number one skill required for the 21st Century.

 

In conclusion the writer poses the question ...

Are we developing our creativity to prepare for the modern world of work?

Does the team we work in create and innovate?

Are we prepared for the uncertainty of the future - is creativity top of the agenda?

10 Lesson Plans to Develop Digital Literacies

10 Lesson Plans to Develop Digital Literacies | 21st Century Creative Resources | Scoop.it

Over the last few months I have been working hard to develop a set of commercially available lesson materials. These lesson plans aren't specifically designed for English language learners, though they will be useful for students at higher levels who want stimulating skills based practice or for any teacher interested in developing a CLIL or content based approach to language learning. They were designed to enable any teacher to develop students in a way that is more closely aligned to the kinds of skills they will need to function effectively and critically in the digital world.

25 Critical Thinking Apps For Extended Student Learning - @teachthought

25 Critical Thinking Apps For Extended Student Learning - @teachthought | 21st Century Creative Resources | Scoop.it

Via John Evans, Lynnette Van Dyke
Linda Buckmaster's insight:

There are many apps that promote critical thinking–and often extended critical thinking and learning at that. These are enjoyable exercises in strategy, tactics, and problem-solving thought. Teach Thought have  collected 25 of these critical thinking apps: for grades 8-12, but several are for students as young as kindergarten.

Whilst providing instant feedback to the player as they go,  they are also practicing extended thinking over a period of time that encourages to look at digital circumstances with a critical eye.

Research on motivation isn’t hard to find; any teacher with an Internet connection should be able to learn everything they need to know about the topic.

So where are they going wrong? If educators already know what works to motivate students, why are so many students still unmotivated?

Creative classrooms giving students skills & hope for 21st century success

Linda Buckmaster's insight:

According to the World Innovation Summit for Education, education is failing to respond to changing economies thus leaving students unprepared to thrive in the modern workplace.

.

In this  article the USN Endowment for the Arts explains that at-risk students with access to the arts in or out of school fare better in school and the workforce and participate more directly in their communities.


PYE’s Creative Community Model helps teachers weave the arts into classroom culture, while building a safe environment for creative expression. This supportive climate, enables students to  connect with their purpose, interests, and values - they begin to care about their futures and shift from passive to proactive learners..
