For many, 21st century skills consist of different elements. These elements will enhance the way we learn as individuals. Each person may have several skills however, it is important for those skills to be mastered. If we can incorporate all of our skills and bring them into one place, we can realize the future we want. These skills are important for our learners because it helps them on the way to a better future. If we teach what we know to others, we are arming the next generation for greatness
WinjiGo covered the three important pillars of the 21st century skills to enhance the learner’s outcome (see description):
Critical Thinking/Problem Solving
When a learner can think critically, it helps them to solve problems better and at a faster pace. Critical thinking is thinking out of the box to find solutions to problems. When we can find solutions to small problems, we can then find solutions to the bigger problems.
Creativity and Innovation
A creative person is an innovative person. It takes creativity and innovation to survive in a world that is technology savvy. Technologies evolve every day. For this reason an educator/ a learner needs to be able to develop creative innovative ideas to stay on top.
Communication and Collaboration
Communication is a key element to any successful venture. Whether it is work, school, or play, communication is needed. If there are no lines of communication, any kind of project will fail. It takes communication for two or more parties to be able to collaborate on any thing. When a learner collaborate, it is easier to accomplish set goals and objectives.
It is important to have all of these 21st century skills to survive in this century and all the future centuries to come. Our skills are what keep us on point with the changing world around us. If we cannot master our skills, we set ourselves up to fail. We have to keep our communications open, our creativity flowing so we can collaborate on the best innovations to come. Think positive about our future so we can solve the problems of the world around us.
