Our students need to be comfortable with the information technologies that are inextricably linked to the 21st century skills the work place requires, and teachers need to help pave the way.
Some of the skills commonly being cited as vital in today’s workforce include:
- The ability to communicate effectively orally and in writing (with almost all of today’s written communications in business being conducted digitally).
- Teamwork skills and the ability to collaborate with others in diverse groups settings (and information technologies are increasingly essential to many forms of organizational collaboration).
- The ability to innovate and be creative (today’s information technologies empower innovate and creative capabilities in ways not previously envisioned).
- The ability to locate, organize, and evaluate information from multiple sources.
