Teaching 21st Century Skills

Today, it’s imperative to have basic computing skills. Imagine trying to successfully make it through tertiary education today without the following essential basic tech skills:

  • Searching using the internet
  • Composing emails
  • Speed typing
  • Word processing
  • Creating Google Slides, Keynote, or PowerPoint presentations

Students with more advanced computer skills in coding, web design, app creation, blogging, and robotics, will almost certainly have a leg up in the job market of the future.

Although students from more affluent backgrounds will likely learn many of the skills outside of school, for many of our students, public education is their only opportunity to develop these skills. To neglect to teach these skills is to perpetuate systemic inequities. We cannot allow access to tech skills to mirror the achievement gap.
