Why Blog?

I love to share things I come across with colleagues, parents and friends and others interested in matters to do with education. I am particularly interested in inquiry learning, gifted education, fostering independence and growing emotional literacy in our children. You may find posts interesting, you may not. You may agree, you may not but the important thing is you ponder about how it sits with you and your learning journey.

Have a great day!

What are the skills and attributes needed in tomorrow's workforce?

I love the provocation in this article. We talk a lot about what skills our children need. This article suggests the need to emotional intelligence rather than factual knowledge and skills will be increasingly important in the future. The collaborative and cooperative skills learned and demonstrated in primary classrooms are more closely related to the skills needed in the workplace than those learned and demonstrated in secondary and tertiary schools.

How can we redesign learning to encourage older students to build on these skills?
What is more important, what or how we learn?

An article that doesn't provide the answers but poses some great questions.
