Editor’s note: This is a revised version of an article written by Katie Lepi that originally appeared on June 7th, 2014.

The 8 Skills Students Must Have For The Future

We believe this information is still highly relevant, but we wanted to update it with the latest thinking. To do that, we invited writer Michael Sledd to take the reins. Education has traditionally focused on the basic “3Rs” of reading, writing and arithmetic. However, as the ever increasing pace of technological innovation drives changes in the world, educators must re-evaluate whether the skills they teach truly provide their students with the best opportunities to succeed in school, the workforce, and in life overall.

This naturally leads to the question of what those skills are or will be, and while there are other excellent suggestions out there, Pearson’s 2014 edition of “The Learning Curve” report lists the 8 skills below as those most necessary to succeed in the 21st century.

Traditional vs. Modern Learning Systems. The system we all consider first is the LMS – the Learning Management System. It is called a Learning Management System because it has traditionally focused on course administration, classroom management, and learner enrollment. Reporting is a classical element of the LMS, but it has been limited by the standard upon which formal training content is built – SCORM and AICC. The new Tin-Can standard (xAPI) promises to enable tracking of the most common forms of learning: informal and social learning. Thus, regardless of the “buzz,” it is worthy of a serious look. The Learning Content Management System (LCMS), the LMS’s less popular brother, is often overlooked by training organizations in lieu of desktop and rapid authoring tools for developing and managing their learning content. Modern Learning Systems vs Traditional The table below offers a guide to help learning professionals compare the traditional systems to the modern learning system.
