NOW READING: The 8 Skills Students Must Have For The Future

The 8 Skills Students Must Have For The Future

via Edudemic


This year’s “The Learning Curve” report from Pearson takes a look at education across the globe. One of the main things the report does is rank the world’s educational systems (which we’ll talk about in a different post). What I find even more interesting is the focus on what skills current students need to meet the ever changing needs of the global market, and some potential ways to address shortcomings in our collective educational systems.

So what are the things that are becoming just as important as the ever-traditional ‘Reading, Writing, and Math’? Take a look below. Do you already incorporate these ideas into all of your classes? Which do you find hardest? Weigh in by leaving a comment below, mentioning @Edudemic on Twitter or leaving your thoughts on our Facebook page.
