The Three Essential Skills for Students and Teachers.

Who would have thought that information and communication technology would change our world so quickly and fundamentally. You will be interested to know that three new skills have been identified for both students and teachers in the new media of social network services.

These skills are:
To be confident in publicly publishing our ideas (Represent ourselves on line, Create and develop an online presence, Post blogs, Comment on uploaded content)
To be an autonomous (independent) learner (View and evaluate content, Create and customise personal and professsional profiles, Maintain a public workspace, Write reflectively in a public space)
To be able to work collaboratively with others (Share content, join existing networks, make and develop contacts, post messages (public and private), use collaborative tools effectively, use calendars, emails, and scheduling of meetings and tasks)

Do you have these skills now? Are you developing your students in these areas? If you or your academic team would like to know more and further develop your skills, contact us at
