Preparing a student for the world that doesn’t yet exist is not an easy task for any teacher. Step back and look at that picture from a broad perspective, what are the critical 21st-century skills students need to survive and succeed in our world? What abilities and traits will serve them in a time that’s changing and developing so rapidly?
Lewis Carroll comes to mind, when he wrote about a Wonderland, he described a world full of marvels and wonder, strange, beautiful and exciting – the perfect description for a 21st Century Skills and Knowledge Wonderland.
But what does that Wonderland look like? Using an IBT touchscreen and Hive interactive software, Funmi Idawu has created a resource that illustrates some of the skills learners today will need to thrive tomorrow.
“The team are delighted to be working in collaboration with Funmi Idowu to present a picture of the 21st Century Skills and Knowledge Wonderland for educators. We hope once you’ve interacted with Funmi’s wonderful digital art, falling into such a Wonderland won’t feel so much like falling into the unknown”.
