'Basic Skills' or 'Soft Skills:' What Should Be Taught and Tested? | #LEARNing2LEARN 

'Basic Skills' or 'Soft Skills:' What Should Be Taught and Tested? | #LEARNing2LEARN  | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it
Friedman clearly notes how Googlers have found that “the old basic skills are not enough,” the more important advantage is ability or capacity to “learn above” the basic skills. That means, the ability to ask big questions, see connections, draw parallels and distinctions, think originally and follow leads, and do it objectively, creatively and collaboratively. The reason this is absolutely essential to Google, and to all organizations that are shaping the new economy, is that innovation and learning to learn new-stuff-on-the-fly are key to their success, and innovation demands perceiving what was not there before and doing whatever you can to learn it.

That is why I think Google’s articulation of the ‘soft skills’ of leadership, innovation, humility, teamwork, and ownership is so right-on. Soft they may be, but these skills constitute a combination that is essential to the core work of innovation, which rarely happens in instantaneous individual breakthroughs but rather evolves through collaborative group endeavors in which personal adaptability is a necessity.

Love the visual representation of the shifts.  They are, themselves, indicative of a shift.  Wonder if there is a poster or .pdf of this.  would be great to have as a reminder right next to my desk.  5 and 6, in particular, speak to Discovery Education's mission with STEM.

5 Better Ways To Say 'I Don't Know' In The Classroom | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it
Do you allow students to answer a question with the response "I don't know" in the classroom? Perhaps you should consider no longer allowing that phrase and instead offering up these five other ways that might get students thinking a bit more.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 22, 2013 11:06 PM

Gerstein provides an interesting look at where education is and where education is going. She provides a look at research that shows that schools are "living within and functioning through an Education 1.0 model." She quotes an article that states "Essentialists argue that classrooms should be teacher-oriented. The teachers or administrators decide what is most important for the students to learn with little regard to the student interests. The teachers also focus on achievement test scores as a means of evaluating progress."

So what defines Education 2.0? "Education 2.0 includes more interaction between the teacher and student; student to student; and student to content/expert."

Education 3.0 moves us into a new direction, one that we are beginning to see. Content is free (think open educational resources) and readily available, It is more self-directed with a focus on creativity, problem solving and innovation.

As always there is a wealth of resources available in the post.

Betsy Eubanks's curator insight, March 23, 2013 10:39 AM

Excellent content, although evaluative testing issue remains unaddressed.

Le changement phénoménal de la technologie provoque de nouvelles transformations au sein de l'éducation. Éducation 3.0 arrive avec toutes les répercussions sur "savoir apprendre " comment apprendre"
