Survival Skills

”Schools haven’t changed; the world has. In the 21st century, mastery of the basic skills of reading, writing, and math is no longer enough.

Thus, work, learning, and citizenship in the 21st century demand that we all know how to think—to reason, analyze, weigh evidence, problem solve. These are no longer skills that only the elites in a society must master; they are essential survival skills for all of us:


  • Critical thinking, creative thinking, problem solving
  • Collaboration across networks
  • Agility and adaptability
  • Initiative and entrepreneurialism
  • Effective written and oral communication
  • Accessing and analyzing information
  • Curiosity and imagination”
