The Other 21st Century Skills: Why Teach Them

The Other 21st Century Skills: Why Teach Them | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it
Many have attempted to identify the skills important for a learner today in this era of the 21st century (I know it is an overused phrase).  I have an affinity towards the skills identified by Tony...

It seems like a normal thing to do. These are needed SKILLs our students need to have.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 10, 7:29 PM

Jackie Gerstein reviews the skills identified by Tony Wagner as well as six additional skills and attributes she believes learners need today.  She then looks at a recent Gallup Poll that looks at Americans expectations of schools today. Quoting from the post:

"While student success may depend on mastery of content in core subject areas such as math and reading, it also depends on more than knowledge of core content. Critical thinking, creativity, communication, and other soft skills, as well as student physical and social wellbeing, are also necessary for future success in higher education and in the workplace. Americans Say U.S. Schools Should Teach “Soft” Skills"

The post continues and explores how the other 21st century skills may be classified as social-emotional skills and how the growth of these skills may positively impact students in other areas. As always Gerstein has provided a post that pushes boundaries and provides a variety of resources.

BYOD is a controversial topic in some education circles but as with any new technology if precautions are taken to protect information and identity BYOD can make a massive difference in a classroom.

How to Run an Effective Brainstorming Session and Stimulate...

How to Run an Effective Brainstorming Session and Stimulate... | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it
Creative ideas can help you drive your business to success. Brian Tracy discusses how to run a brainstorming session and encourage creative thinking.

 

The aim of the brainstorming session should be to generate the most ideas possible within a specific period of time.

 

===> An effective brainstorming session will last anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes, and 30 minutes is usually ideal. <===

María Dolores Díaz Noguera's curator insight, January 2, 1:56 PM

Amazing

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 6, 3:01 PM

Teachers can start using Hangouts simply by setting up a Google+ page and signing up for the Hangout feature. They can conduct virtual classrooms at a number of places; it allows a teacher to teach up to 10 classrooms at the same time. It makes classes interactive and students can ask questions whenever they want. They can use it to connect their classroom with other classrooms or to connect their students with experts across the world, providing them with connected learning experiences. There are many ways in which teachers and students can derive benefits from using Hangouts in the classroom.

Everyone should be working in this direction.

Renee Stewart's curator insight, January 25, 8:03 PM

I think that these are the right answers for the goal of all education, with or without technological integration. We don't teach kids to use a hammer so they can bash things, it is so that they can integrate it as a tool to be used purposefully to achieve a greater goal e.g. the building of a house. In the process they develop hand-eye coordination, muscle control, restraint and safety-awareness. Digital tools - Analog tools, all valuable, all have their place within the context of broader learning. Our goal is to help students learn to match and the best tools for the task and then support them as they acquire both the tool specific skills and the broader educational goal.
