7 Skills students need for their future

Dr. Tony Wagner, co-director of Harvard's Change Leadership Group has identified what he calls a "global achievement gap," which is the leap between what even our best schools are teaching, and the must-have skills of the future:

 

* Critical thinking and problem-solving

* Collaboration across networks and leading by influence

* Agility and adaptability

* Initiative and entrepreneurialism

* Effective oral and written communication

* Accessing and analyzing information

* Curiosity and imagination

Digital Native vs Digital Citizen? Examining a Dangerous Stereotype

Digital Native vs Digital Citizen? Examining a Dangerous Stereotype | STEM and STE(A)M Education | Scoop.it
There are a lot of dangerous stereotypes out there. "Asian students are always better at math." "Boys are always better at sports." And perhaps the most dangerous of all: "The current generation are all digital natives."

 

It is easy to see the danger in the first two stereotypes. They tend to influence the way teachers, parents, peers and society in general classify, justify and treat whichever group is represented by the stereotype. I'm not sure enough people give enough thought to the third, equally dangerous, stereotype.

How the Arts Unlock the Door to Learning

How the Arts Unlock the Door to Learning | STEM and STE(A)M Education | Scoop.it
Student achievement was down. Teachers were demoralized. Until a bold strategy -- integrating the arts into curricula -- helped students embrace their learning and retain their knowledge.

 

Arts integration goes beyond including art projects in class; it is a teaching strategy that seamlessly merges arts standards with core curricula to build connections and provide engaging context.

Assessing 21st Century Skills

Assessing 21st Century Skills | STEM and STE(A)M Education | Scoop.it

Recently, one of the teachers who is participating in our district’s 21st Century Learning grant project came to talk with me about assessing 21 century skills – one of the expectations for teachers in this project. Her observation was that students frequently practice the skills when engaged in research or project based learning. The thing she was struggling, with, though, was how to “grade it.”
