There are two major trends in the world that pose a fundamental challenge–and many opportunities–to our educational system. One is the world is shifting from an industrial economy to a knowledge economy. The other is the rising generation–brought up on the Internet–is very differently motivated to learn.

These two forces, argues Dr. Tony Wagner, co-director of Harvard’s Change Leadership Group, compel us to reconceptualize education in this country. In his thoughtful analysis of future industry needs and education readiness studies, Dr. Wagner has identified what he calls a “global achievement gap,” which is the leap between what even our best schools are teaching, and the must-have skills of the future:

  • Critical thinking and problem-solving
  • Collaboration across networks and leading by influence
  • Agility and adaptability
  • Effective oral and written communication
  • Accessing and analyzing information
  • Curiosity and imagination
