When it comes to social media, students may know more than you, but as students progress through school, online research skills become more important.

Well worth the read.

Valuable insight. We must teach students how to access and discern what is garbage and what is gold. We cannot assume they will figure this out without our guidance.

Interesantes resultados y recomendaciones que surgen de un estudio realizado a partir del análisis de la data recogida de la observación de 6.9 millones de sesiones de videos por parte de estudiantes de cuatro cursos edX y de entrevistas con equipos de producción de dichos videos. Se midió el nivel de interés (engagement) que estos videos provocaron en los estudiantes de manera indirecta a través del tiempo en que estos permanecían observando el video. Aún cuando esta no es ni siquiera una buena medida para comprender el impacto de estos contenidos multimedia en el aprendizaje de los alumnos, el estudio brinda algunas interesantes luces sobre como deben producirse estos videos para fines educativos y conseguir al menos que los estudiantes no se aburran rápidamente con ellos.

nice visual to provide to students and /or hang in the classroom. Seems pretty student friendly and the power of the images will provide another format to understand  and follow.

"To understand the extent to which the skills taught in education systems around the world are changing, and whether they meet the needs of employers and society more widely, Google commissioned research from The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). The EIU surveyed senior business executives, teachers and students."

Muy bueno!!!!

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, June 7, 2015 5:56 PM

Preparing our students with the necessary skills for post-secondary career and college is critical, but especially for our poverty students.  Too often, school is the only venue to provide these thinking, collaboration, and problem solving skills. However, many poverty schools under the pressure of standardized testing are stuck in a remediation routine of filling gaps in content, reading, and math.  We must provide time for teachers to collaborate and plan integrated lessons that integrate these higher level thinking skills into their content areas. 

Katie Catania's curator insight, August 5, 2015 9:10 AM

What skills do learners need today to be prepared to be a leader as they move through school and into careers? Google commissioned a study and this post provides a short video that discusses key findings as well as a link to the final report, Driving the Skills Agenda: Preparing Students for the Future.

The Executive Summary provides a number of key findings, including the ones listed below. (The text below is quoted from the report.)

* Problem solving, team working and communication are the skills that are currently most in demand in the workplace.

* Education systems are not providing enough of the skills that students and the workplace need.

* Some students are taking it into their own hands to make up for deficiencies within the education system.

* Technology is changing teaching, but education systems are keeping up with the transformation rather than leading it.

The full report provides additional information, including a number of visuals as well as case studies. As educators it is important that we consider the skills our learners will need in the future, and this report provides insight into some of what will be needed.
