Allan Shaw's curator insight, April 14, 2013 6:55 PM

"The shift is from learning content to learning how to learn.

The takeaways for teachers probably start with the role of the student in the learning process: voice, choice, personalization, self-direction, project-based learning, and other low-hanging fruit of current trends in learning.

Bigger picture, the conclusions are probably more directed with educational structures, the form of curriculum, and school design."

The micro needs to be worked on in school. The macro needs to be addressed by school and system leaders. Thanks Gust!

Great link...and I agree there is a lot of confusion these days. As far as future job skills, there was a recent study that showed we are very poor at predicting specific occupations. It is far better to focus on core competencies versus preparing students for specific jobs given we're not all sure what they will even be in the future..my view.
Gust MEES's comment, February 1, 2013 8:31 AM
@Linda: TRUE, there will be NEW jobs which nobody today could predict! Therefore it is very important to teach the students, learners, the BEST possible skills of ICT which WE know actually and to teach them "Learning 2 Learn", so that they will be BEST prepared for Self-Learning (autodidact) to master the "Life Long Learning" who is aa MUST for 21st Century!

EM Matthews's curator insight, June 20, 2015 6:01 AM

EQ is easily one of the most necessary, yet under-sought character skill sets for effective leadership and management! EQ was once the result of years of trial and error regarding effective social interactions. As the article suggests we all have the capacity for EQ, the challenge rests, however in actively nurturing (through targeted practice) our efforts at successfully employing and improving our EQ abilities, or characteristics.
