What skills do students need in order to be technologically literate? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In this rapidly evolving and advancing Technologically driven world, what would be some mandatory skills that children of today will need to be successful in tomorrow's world? 

    Today's curriculum is definitely not designed for tomorrow. Any information and specific tips will be appreciated. 

    Thank you.

  • Hi.

    This is a very open question that only asks for people's opinions. No one's answer will be a complete solution. Here are my opinions that are limited to my life experiences and deductions.

    • Children must decide to explore and learn a technology.
    • Children must be patient with themselves when they learn a technology.
    • Children must learn to discover a technology's navigation system.
    • Children must learn to set correct expectations with the capabilities of a technology.
    • Children must learn how technologies can be connected to add capabilities.
    • Children must be willing to adjust to changing technologies.
    • Children must be willing to patiently teach others what they have learned.

    I suspect you could replace the word "Children" above with the word "People" and they would still apply.

    Good luck.

    Best wishes, Davin Mickelson
