Top 5 skills for kids in 2020!
This course serves as a curated guidebook for parents, educators and employers about some of the key skills that are essential for young people to thrive in the 21st century. We have a great responsibility on our shoulders to start building the workforce of the future as early as possible because the pace of innovation in education is very slow. Schools are yet to adapt. They are teaching knowledge that has very short shelf life and imparting techniques that will be abandoned tomorrow. So it is imperative for us to take charge and start working on building their skillsets as early as possible!
The need to upskill is not just an option but it is the only way forward. Building new skills will enable kids to take control instead of being passive recipients of change. It will create new opportunities and empower them to create their own future. It will enable them to ride the waves of change rather than being swept away.
Some of the essential 21st century skills that we will talk about in this course include digital literacy, personal branding, storytelling, metacognition and lifelong learning.
The list of skills that need to be emphasized is long and I will keep adding more skillsets to this curriculum moving forward but we are starting off with these top 5 skills that we need to start working on right away!
