Sage Advice: The Know-How That Will Serve Kids Best

What is the most critical skill students should master to succeed?

Turning passion into performance. Too many kids separate their interests from their academics, even if the two have a lot in common. Science class is one thing, and exploring nature in the backyard is another. Separating interests from work is a bad habit that can continue through life if we don’t learn to love what we do.

The most critical skill students should master is being able to creatively solve problems. Being able to brainstorm, to create new ideas, and to try new ways to solve problems is essential to our future as participants in a global economy.

Besides reading and math computation, everyone needs to know how to solve problems. The most successful people in our society are not always the brightest academically, but they are all able to solve problems. Not the kind of problems that have trains going in opposite directions at different speeds, but the kind that force you to think through a situation and come up with reasonable alternatives that help you accomplish a task or do a job. Problem solvers have critical-thinking skills and are able to assess along the way whether their thought process is reasonable. Problem solvers also think quickly on their feet, because they do not get distracted with extra information. Regardless of career, students need to be able to think through and solve problems to be successful.

The most important skill to teach is thinking. The skills needed for tomorrow don’t exist today, so we must prepare students to be able to think critically and with a systems-based perspective so that they can quickly learn the skills (both physical and mental) they will need to succeed in their lifetime.
