Fostering Creativity While Nurturing Learners
Boehm, Patricia
Knowledge Quest, v37 n5 p38-41 May-Jun 2009
Technology skills are crucial for future employment needs. There will be people who identify these crucial skills as software and hardware maintenance and manipulation. Those skills just scratch the surface of future employment needs. Using technology to create a document, manipulate data, and share knowledge is now crucial for more than employment--these tasks are part of life for this generation. Students will certainly enter the work force with basic skills. They will not have to be trained on how to use a computer; they do that with ease. They should also enter the work force with skills that foster creativity and allow them to collaborate, innovate, network, evaluate, adapt, communicate, and learn while seamlessly using technology.
