"The Future of Employment study makes clear that what matters most today is what you can do with what you know, rather than how much you know."
- Dr. Tony Wagner

 

We need to create schools that coach students for skill and will, in addition to teaching content. If we don't make this transition quickly, a growing number of our youth will be unemployable at the same time that employers complain that they cannot find new hires who have the skills they need. - Dr. Tony Wagner

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 3, 4:59 PM

There is no doubt the type of jobs available today and in the future are different and will be different than they have been. Having said this, children learn in concrete ways and not in abstract ways based on distant objectives. That is an adult way of doing things in education.

Just like a tattoo, your digital reputation is an expression of yourself. It is formed and added to by you and others over time. In her Digital Tattoo presentation at ISTE 2013 (also in video forma...

 

Managing your digital footprint starts with asking questions like: Who are you? What do you stand for? What are your passions and beliefs?

 

The important lesson with managing your digital footprint is that

 

===> everything we do online should represent who we are and what we stand for and we must have the knowledge that this representation will stick with us potentially forever. <===

Carol Dwek's Mindset is based on a lot of research she has done over the years. It has applications throughout higher education. 

Parent Cortical Mass's curator insight, February 19, 5:19 AM

nice set of links about Carol Dweck's Mindset Theory.  Every parent needs to know what Carol Dweck discovered in her research.  

Jaimee's curator insight, March 5, 7:09 AM

So one who wants to make a change must have a positive outlook on new situations or task that they are not used to?

 

This article is about how one can gain or become a part of the group that is a growth mind set. You gain success or become a better person by following these changes.

Is Content Curation in Your Skill Set? It Should Be.

Is Content Curation in Your Skill Set? It Should Be. | Communication & Leadership | Scoop.it

Curation is a growing need in organizations, and as such, a growing competency for those focused on worker performance. At the same time, the vision of what this competency looks like in practice is cloudy. How will what we do look different when we add curation to our skill sets?

Ahora si entendí qué es curation !!! 

Marisol Araya Fonseca's curator insight, February 1, 9:28 AM

Sure it is!!  Last week I showed my students how to scoopit.  I thought that since they seem to love Facebook, Scoopit was going to be a wow experience for them.  However, contrary to my expectations most of them did not show a real interest, or at least the kind of interest I expected.  What a pain!  Maybe it is a matter of time, culture, love for reading and writing, etc.  From a group of 12 youngers, only 2 of them said:  Thanks teacher, I like it!  Well... I will keep on trying...

Good article on content curation. So important nowadays ,with so much information around us, we need tools to process it (such as netvibes, diigo, delicious, feedly, etc.)
