Film Offers Another Thought of School

Kyle Wingfield, a blogger, posted an excellent referral to a film documentary called, “Most Likely to Succeed.”

As Wingfield points out, the pathway that the creators of the documentary suggest includes a “shift from drilling kids on content, a readily available commodity, toward developing “soft skills” [appropriately, the film prefers “critical skills”] such as written and oral communication, collaboration, creative problem-solving, and constructive critical analysis.”

According to Wingfield, the documentary takes no political stand; rather, it focuses on what is important for today’s students as they face a much more complicated and competitive world than their parents or grandparents ever imagined.

Check it out.
