The term 21st Century Skills has been used to describe this shift and these new skills
While I agree with the importance of this shift away from just raw knowledge and facts I don't like the term 21st Century Skills. We are more than half way through 2014 and we are almost two decades into the 21st century. I would rather call these skills, life skills.
What are these life skills ?
Here is my list
* Critical Thinking
* Risk Taking
* Learning from Mistakes
* Having a Growth Mindset
I would love to hear your thoughts on the life skills we need to instill in our students.
