Methods and tools to develop future-ready skills

In preparing students for the essential skills they need for the future, we have different methods and digital tools that we can bring into our classroom space. But what skills do students really need? 

A great resource to explore is the skills outlook provided by the World Economic Forum. The top skills cited include emotional intelligence, collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving.

What is important to note is that these skills align with the five core competencies of social-emotional learning (SEL) skills of self-awareness, social awareness, self-management, relationship building, and decision making.  

Because of the changes that we experienced in the past year, I believe that it is important to have various options, whether teaching in-person, hybrid, or virtually.
