Needed 21st Century Skills
The World Economic Forum recently penned a piece on the skills today’s students will be required to master. Breaking them into three categories (foundational literacies, competencies, and character qualities), the WEF identified 16 central skills for today’s learners:
- Scientific literacy
- ICT literacy
- Financial literacy
- Cultural and civic literacy
- Critical thinking/problem solving
- Social and cultural awareness
Many of these skills are well embedded in the teaching happening in high school classrooms each and every day. So we ask … educators, what are you doing to bring these skills to your class? And parents, are you seeing your children mastering these important issues?
