Tony Wagner: Seven Essential Survival Skills

These are what we call “The Seven Essential Survival Learning Skills” needed for success in school and in the world of work and we need to teach these skills for our studens to be successful.


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
