Universal Skills All Learners Should Know How to Do

Universal Skills All Learners Should Know How to Do | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it

"This morning I was thinking about the things that all young people should know how to do regardless of income, geographical location, life goals, etc.  I started a list – see below.  Some have “always” been true – some are unique to this century of learning.  Let me know of any other universal skills you believe young people should know how to do."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 6, 9:48 PM

What do young people need to know? Jackie Gerstein provides a great visual as well as a list of 18 ideas, and each has a link for additional information. She also requests that you send her additional ideas.

After you review the list you might consider how many of these skills are taught in your school, or consider which should be taught in school.
Five of her ideas are below. Click through to the post for the rest.

* How to be a self-directed learner – finding and using resources (both face-to-face and online) to learn and improve personal interests

* How to evaluate websites and online tools for credibility

* How to work in mixed-age groups

* How to code

* How to set and achieve goals

Kimberly House's curator insight, December 7, 12:16 PM

The best question she asks is 'Which are taught in school? Which should be?' These are great questions to explore as a staff in looking at these universal skills.

Teach students problem-solving, not information-gathering, B.C. educators told | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it
When all the information in the world — including mathematical formulae, historical dates and names, and philosophical theories — is available at the click of a button, what is the purpose of education? The purpose is to teach people how to evaluate information, ask the right questions, and be able to solve complex difficult problems, Quest University president David Helfand told educators gathered Friday during a session of the provincial professional development day.

Do you understand how the Internet works? Can you dissect a URL? How much does a terabyte hold? These questions (and several others) are answered in a number of infographics created by Abby Ryan Design and available at this website. If you teach students about these concepts this may help many visual learners in their understanding. The infographics found here are:

* Dissecting a URL

* How the Internet Works

* The Evolution of Computers

* How much does a TB Hold?

* 7 Commandments of Computer Use

* 10 Signs Your Computer has a Virus

* Anatomy of a Ninja

Have fun exploring and sharing these with your students.

"Reading, in terms of scale and diversity, is different than it used to be. Thinking, in terms of context and application, is also different.

It makes since that learning is also changing–becoming more entrepreneurial than directly didactic. That is, more learner-centered ... than teacher-controlled."

Targeting 6 Social Learning Needs in eLearning Environments

Targeting 6 Social Learning Needs in eLearning Environments | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it

Helen Teague's curator insight, October 9, 9:55 PM
Beth Dichter's insight:

SH!FT has published a new post that looks at how one can meet social learning needs in an online environment. The post includes a link to a short video (~3 minutes) that looks at "the application of neuroscience to organizational development."

The six areas are also found in a face2face environment (although there may be students whom do not experience all of them).

To create a more effective eLearning course consider these areas as you design it:

1. Belonging to a group

2. Ability to express

3. Ability to compete

4. Ability to support and be supported by other learners

5. Ability to see what's being learned

6. Excitement about applying learning

More information is available on each of these concepts in the post.
