8 Critical Skills For A Modern Education

8 Critical Skills For A Modern Education | Geography, Science and Education : Go to bed with fuller brain! | Scoop.it

"Pearson sent us this report recently–Exploring the Learning Curve. The big idea here is the changing skill needs for students globally. It is based on this idea of an index–a Global Index of Cognitive Skills and Education Attainment. The report explains:
'The Global Index of Cognitive Skills and Educational Attainment compares the performance of 39 countries and one region (Hong Kong) on two categories of education: Cognitive Skills and Educational Attainment. The Index provides a snapshot of the relative performance of countries based on their education outputs.'”

Critical skills that will secure a positive future, for you or your kids!

WEAC's curator insight, June 26, 2014 11:39 AM

Short and to the point, this list provides great food for thought. DId you expect to see digital literacy as one of the top skills for a modern education?

Audrey's curator insight, July 10, 2014 2:28 PM

These would seem to correlate with Thomas Friedman's    "The world is flat" idea.  Basically we need to value and  respect all human beings as those  people at the bottom of the tree last century wont always be there:  

 

Emotional intelligence (feel things from others point of view).  Communication (learn to speak  another person's language). Problem-solving (Listen to and understand someone else's pain and joy); Team-working (the ability to liaise with others as humans who feel pain, cry, hurt just as you do).  

 

Basically the emphasis seems to be on humanity as one rather group rather than the superficial differences.  The idea is for human beings to leave the savannah.

"Technology has had a transformative impact on the education system worldwide, comprehensively impacting how students learn, share and gather information.

 

The adoption of technologies like mobile apps, cloud computing and game-based learning has helped students be more productive. From being consumers, students are now becoming creators and innovators, thanks to technology’s ubiquity. As K-12 schools and universities continue to adopt new technology for learning, here are some of the future learning trends to expect in the next few years:"

China's territorial claims

Kaitlin Young's curator insight, November 20, 2014 8:44 AM
The People's Republic of China is beginning to frighten its neighbors by flexing its growing power in regards to territorial claims. While China chose to keep to its self during the major periods of world colonialism, it is now considering the benefits of enlarging its borders. Since China is much larger with a more powerful economy and military than its neighbors, countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia risk a lot by fighting China's claims. Oil plays in the South China Sea are causing multiple countries to argue over territory. Whether or not China is willing to spark war within the region to claim natural resources crucial to its growth as a world power is yet to be seen.
Alec Castagno's curator insight, December 17, 2014 3:28 PM

China has a history of imperialism and expansion, and their recent economic gains show it may be considering taking steps in that direction again. The country is in border disputes in at least three different regions with seven countries or more. China appears very bold by claiming desire the control an area that is already disputed between five countries, and is much further away from China than it is the other countries.

John Nieuwendyk's curator insight, December 17, 2014 5:24 PM

China is imposing these territorial claims as it is a benefit for their economy. That being said this can cause geo-political tensions that can have detrimental effects on how one country trades with another.

NASA's Earth Day Global Selfie 2014

NASA's Earth Day Global Selfie 2014 | Geography, Science and Education : Go to bed with fuller brain! | Scoop.it

The year 2014 is a big one for NASA Earth science. Five NASA missions designed to gather critical data about our home planet are launching to space this year. NASA astronauts brought home the first ever images of the whole planet from space. Now NASA satellites capture new images of Earth every second. For Earth Day we created an image of Earth from the ground up while also fostering a collection of portraits of the people of Earth. As those pictures streamed around the world on Earth Day, the individual pictures tagged #GlobalSelfie were collected and used to create a mosaic image of Earth -- a new "Blue Marble" built bit by bit with your photos.
