Addendum to Concordia Lesson

Is perspective one of the “liquid skills” that Taylor connects with STEAM Learning>

Peter Taylor (2016) writes that  “Given the rapid emergence of digital technologies, artificial intelligence, DNA mapping, robotics, nanotechnology, 3D printing, biotechnology and the ‘internet of things’, business and industry leaders are calling for graduates with liquid skills that enable them to adapt to a fluid working landscape throughout their lives; to prepare for jobs that currently do not exist, but that will be essential to the nation’s economic wellbeing. In this section, you will reflect on how to integrate STEAM activities and graphic organizers into your content instruction.”

Taylor (2016) connects STEAM education with “liquid skills.” that also mirror many 21st Century Skills. These liquid skills include “the ability to work with others, verbal communication, creative and critical thinking, active listening and active learning, and a disposition towards lifelong learning” (Infosys, 2016).
