skills we need to survive in a modern world



i saw the washington post article “Top 10 skills children learn from the arts” by valerie strauss.

it lists following 10 skills:


1) creativity

2) confidence

3) problem solving

4) perseverance

5) focus

6) non-verbal communication

7) receiving constructive feedback

8) collaboration

9) dedication

10) accountability


my first impression is that this is extremely ambitious.

a lot of adults i know do not have these skills.

it would be great if children already would learn these skills.
