Why We All Need Advanced Life Skills

Why We All Need Advanced Life Skills | Technologies for Learning 160 semester 1, 2012 | Scoop.it
We all need to learn and benefit from Advanced Life Skills because all life skills are not created equal. Basic life skills are simply not enough.

 

I am convinced that billions of people feel trapped in a life full of limits and frustrations because they have never been taught the simple skills that have the power to transform almost every aspect of their current situation.

 

As a result, a life of personal excellence seems like an impossible dream for most. We can easily understand why so many people feel that way when we consider the scarcity of living examples. Most people see very little evidence that a life of extraordinary quality is even possible.

 

Not all life skills are created equal

Google is Not God: We Need a New Philosophy for Education and Technology

Google is Not God: We Need a New Philosophy for Education and Technology | Technologies for Learning 160 semester 1, 2012 | Scoop.it

Google is not God, but the omnipresent search engine commands an unworldly level of trust from its followers. 

 

If they’re naive at Googling, it’s because the ability to judge information is almost never taught in school. Under 2001′s No Child Left Behind Act, elementary and high schools focus on prepping their pupils for reading and math exams.

 

===> And by the time kids get to college, professors assume they already have this skill. <===

The 21st century skills teachers should have

The 21st century skills teachers should have | Technologies for Learning 160 semester 1, 2012 | Scoop.it

In one of my previous post entitled what every teacher should know about google. reference was made to the notions of the 21st century learner and how these learners depend wholly on media and social networking to live in this fast_paced world. In today’s post i will present two short videos that will hopefully change what some think about teaching. The following videos are among the top educative videos online .

 

With the advance of technological innovations into our lives , education has been radically transformed and teachers who do not use social media and educational technology in thier teaching no longer fit in the new system.That’s why every educator and teacher should reconsider certain values and principles . watch this first one minute 40 seconds video to see the negative side that every teacher must not have
