The Other 21st Century Skills

The Other 21st Century Skills | Learning Today | Scoop.it

"This presentation sparked my thinking about what other skills and attributes would serve the learners (of all ages) in this era of learning.  Some other ones that I believe important based on what I hear at conferences, read via blogs and other social networks include:

GritResilienceHope and OptimismVisionSelf-RegulationEmpathy and Global Stewardship"


Via John Evans
James Matthews's insight:

In our school, many of these words have found their way to not only our core values policy, but also on to each of the subjects skills policies.

The Global Teacher

The Global Teacher | Learning Today | Scoop.it
Global teachers (should) care about education as a whole, as well as their school and their classroom. I just want to iterate that if the person only looks at sharing and learning globally, but cannot connect with those in their classroom or school, I would not consider them a “global teacher”.
They just know that we are better when we work together, not just taking, but contributing. They know what they share makes a difference for others, as well as knowing what they learn from others makes a difference for their school and students.
So where are you on the spectrum, and what type of teacher would you want in your school?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 31, 10:45 AM

Nature is a place where we can see the patterns we need to see. It is also a reminder of our place in something much bigger than human invention and creation. Nature is a the ultimate creative space where creation is ongoing.
