Lessons Learned About Education

Education in the 21st Century The learning skills required in this century are new and different abilities than were required many years ago. The economy will be in jeopardy if students are not educated in current 21st century skills. What the students had been learning ten years ago, should not be required today. We no longer need to teach how to email properly when most of the students are instant messaging. We are to adapt 21st century skills knowledge to a changing world. The important skills that must be taught in schools today are critical thinking skills, and how to ask questions that require answers from several resources.
Where To Start with Lessons and More
Instead of teaching content to our students, we need to teach them how to locate relevant, accurate content. There are those who create grounds in class just so to fulfill requirements so that when teachers’ evaluations come they can say that they did what was required of them, which is short of its purpose.

Groups are created so that our students will learn how to collaborate with others. This is not only to be done in the classroom, but across the globe. The future careers are still unknown to us. We as yet do not know where they will be and what their job descriptions would be. But what we know is that 21st century skills will require the student to be a critical thinker, problem solver, and have global awareness. The skills that students should be using every day in class are those that help them in understanding the changing technology environment like social networking and contribution to the development of intellectual texts. Engaging our students in this adapting changing world is important. We should always be real. Solving math problems today with math apps is very easy. It is even simple to make an essay using Google, and they can text their friends in the next class when you assigned them to do. Our job as educators is to understand this concept. This knowledge should be used and solve a bigger problem. If you require a student to present the findings to a real world problem focusing on in class oral presenting skills, this cannot be downloaded from YouTube.

Refocusing our priorities as educators by teaching our students that which will prepare them for the future is our priority.
