Correlation!

Linda Buckmaster's curator insight, July 10, 2015 6:49 AM

Students' exposure to so-called 21st-century skills in school correlates positively with perceived quality of work later in life, according to a new study by Gallup Inc

 

"Interestingly, younger participants (ages 18-22) were slightly less likely to say they used collaborative technology in school than older participants—a surprise given the growing prevalence of social media and online collaboration tools in recent years.  On the whole, however, younger respondents had higher levels of 21st-century skills development than older survey participants. The study conjectures that this may be an indication that "teaching strategies are changing in the U.S."
