Preparing Learners for the Future

science

The article “Using Motivation Sources to Guide Students to Their Ideal Careers” reminds educators (homeschooling families!) that we are preparing learners for their future, a future we can’t really imagine, with jobs that do not even exist today.

Here are some important takeaways from this great online article:

Technology is the way of the future, and we need to give our children skills to embrace technology. Some of these skills include the following:

  • Mental Elasticity: Thinking outside the box
  • Complex Problem-Solving: Thinking about complicated problems and coming up with innovative solutions
  • Critical Thinking: Synthesizing information from several sources and drawing meaningful conclusions
  • Creativity: Thinking abstractly, coming up with new ideas, diagnosing and solving problems
  • People Skills: Connecting with people everywhere, all over the world
  • Interdisciplinary Knowledge: Being able to pull information and skill sets from multiple sources
