Camp Snowball Day 4

Today, Tony Wagner appeared at our morning general session. He talked about the problems in our education, and that for 25 years, schools were doing the same things and therefore getting the same end results. He explained what was most important, is to pay attention to the time formulation of the problem rather than the solution, and resist the urge to come to a quick answer. He told us the seven survival skills for school, college, and the future. 
  1. Critical thinking/ problem solving (competitive)
  2. Ability to communicate 
  3. Agility and adaptability 
  4. Initiative in entrepreneurship
  5. Effective in oral and written communication
  6. Accessing and analyzing information 
  7. Curiosity and imagination 
And that play, passion, and purpose, were all the keys for education
