Universal Skills All Learners Should Know How to Do

Universal Skills All Learners Should Know How to Do | Educational Technology Grab Bag | 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."

Kimberly House's insight:

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.

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

Empathy and Global Stewardship: The Other 21st Century Skills

Empathy and Global Stewardship: The Other 21st Century Skills | Educational Technology Grab Bag | Scoop.it

Quoted from post:

Empathy has always been valued as an important skill to possess as a human being, so what makes it a 21st century skill?  I was recently asked by Steve Hargadon during a short video interview, “Is global education important?  If so, why?”  My response was, “Given that we are now living in a hyper-connected world, we can no longer plead that we don’t what is going on in other parts of the world..."

Jackie Gerstein continues to share her thoughts on the other 21st century skills students need discussing empathy and global stewardship. After sharing her reason for combining empathy and global stewardship Gerstein somes of the characteristics or dispositions related to empathy (see image above).

You will also find a video from National Geographic, Perspectives = Empathy; a video from RSA, The Six Habits of Highly Empathic People; a list developed by the state of Washington ( specifically "a think tank for education for sustainable communities") that provides " characteristics that define folks who are equipped for sustainable futures"; a look at a connection beweeen empathy and design thinking, a look at a connection between empathy and grit as 21st century skills, and many resources for educators.

Gerstein has provided a post that will make you think about empathy and global stewardship as well as resources that may help you work with these concepts in your classroom this year.
