Nurturing Future-Proof Skills in Learners



Emphasising Critical Thinking, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship

In today's rapidly evolving world, preparing our children for the future means equipping them with skills that go beyond traditional academic learning. We have to foster critical thinking, creativity, and entrepreneurship to build resilient, future-proof futures for our young learners. Here's how:


Critical Thinking

Critical thinking relies on understanding a broad range of ideas and concepts about a subject. It's difficult to fully comprehend climate change when you only think of the social perspective. We need to help students see issues from a multi-perspective, polymath viewpoint.

Creativity

Creativity is more than just artistic ability; it's about thinking outside the box and approaching problems with fresh, innovative ideas. School, particularly later, isn't really designed for this. The focus moves to test scores and finite, fixed answers. To build problem solvers, take away the scaffolding and let their minds roam freely. Never tell them something is impossible, unless you're 1000% sure. Even then, it's better to be quiet in the sense that boundless thinking fails high up. Restricted thinking thuds to the ground.


Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurial skills are not just for starting businesses; they are about fostering a proactive mindset, leadership, and resilience. We introduce our students to the basics of entrepreneurship, encouraging them to take initiative, manage projects, and learn from their successes and failures. Being an entrepreneur is not about making money, it's about solving problems for humanity and the Earth itself. Why can't we marry economic prosperity with doing something awesome?

Engaging Activities for Skill Development

To support parents and teachers in nurturing these vital skills, we've created a PDF activity . This is a fabulously fun exercise designed to develop critical thinking, creativity, and entrepreneurship in children. The activitity, taken from one of our workbooks, is perfect for use at home or in the classroom, providing practical ways to reinforce these essential skills.
