The younger generation is growing up in a complex world where information is broadcast to them via multiple information and media channels. They encounter this in school and in everyday life. It is imperative they have the skills to know how to successfully navigate the information overwhelm and to apply these skills to be able to learn smarter and more efficiently now and into the future.
Karen Bonanno has been a strong advocate for preparing young people for a very different future through her writings, work on Inquiry Skills Scope & Sequence, Future Skills Future Schools Future Libraries presentations, and her involvement with the Genius School.
Together with a colleague, Leonie McIlvenny, she has recently developed and delivered an inquiry & purpose-based microschool that brings together four key components for being future-ready:
- Learning how to learn, not what to learn, is an essential lifelong capability.
- 21st Century Skills development for creative & innovative thinking.
- Authentic, real-life application of learning to become an active global citizen.
- Development of character qualities for interpersonal & emotional wellbeing.
Through a facilitated learning approach, students were engaged in active learning, ultimately taking charge of their individual learning outcomes.
This live webinar will explore:
- Why it's necessary for future skills development for the younger generation.
- What it means to be "digitally literate" cf. being "technology literate".
- 5 essential steps to help children be smarter learners in an ever-changing world.
