Seems to me that most of the key skills are covered here for the modern workforce, so why don't we see educational institutions taking a lot more notice of these and make the necessary investment?

inspiration4kidz's curator insight, February 2, 10:02 PM

Are we teaching kids these skills in a system designed for the 20th century?

Ben Bempong's curator insight, July 20, 7:30 PM

I chose this because I highly believe that knowing your mindset will definitely be beneficial in knowing to you learn and study.  Kids have fixed mindset, and kids have growth mindset.  As educators, a big task will be to change students from fixed mindsets to growth mindsets.  Know what your dealing with is a bonus in knowing your approach on how to mold and shape a student academically.

Jason Smith's curator insight, July 20, 8:00 PM

Great article for elementary educators

The power of the Infographic is that it references both teacher and student actions and habits. I have shared it with my teachers. This might become a solid self-assessment tool for coaching conversations with teachers.

Drucker's words have always resonated in my mind. As a leader you must constantly ask yourself, "What choices did I make today to deserve loyalty, to nurture trust, and to inspire someone to follow my vision?"Need I say anything else.

Est-ce que l'école n'a pas l'obligation de favoriser l'apprentissage de tous?

Lon Woodbury's curator insight, December 30, 2014 5:32 PM

This idea has been around a long time.  When I was an undergraduate, I had some friends state to me something along the lines of: "Now that I've finished my assignments, I can start pursuing my education."  The network of schools and programs for struggling teens started in the 1980s were based on many of these ideas, and so far as emotional growth along with academics, the emphasis was on helping the struggling students learn who they are and what they can do with it.  The motivation at that time was very much along the line of what the author calls learning.  Many of them are still doing that. -Lon

SMARTERTEACHER's curator insight, February 1, 11:29 AM

WOW! Great concept "SCHOOL does not equal LEARNING". This is a scary thought for many teachers who create content driven classrooms.  But as educators it speaks to the value of the building an environment of learning.

[Slideshare] Future of Learning and Technology 2020: Preparing for change

The education landscape of 2020 will be characterized by the blurring of boundaries. Learning anywhere and anytime will be commonplace in many different ways based on the ubiquitous and innovative use of technology. Our organizations face a duality of change—conceptual and technological—regarding the practices of education and learning. The practices of teaching, presenting and learning will undergo fundamental change as it responds to global, social, political, technological and of course, learning research trends. Will your organization be ready and prepared to take advantage of these seismic changes to education, learning and technology?
