The personal learning network for educators

Dr. Tony Wagner, co-director of Harvard's Change Leadership Group has identified what he calls a "global achievement gap," which is the leap between what even our best schools are teaching, and the must-have skills of the future: * Critical thinking and problem-solving * Collaboration across networks and leading by influence * Agility and adaptability * Initiative and entrepreneurialism * Effective oral and written communication * Accessing and analyzing information * Curiosity and imagination

Only getting time to watch this now, but really enjoyed the concepts and ideas. As someone who has joined teaching from industry, it's fascinating seeing things that are taught for exams, but not really for any other purpose (in many ways, although there is a point to pupils understanding how to learn and study).
Nice video.
