Last month, I published a post entitled "Important Skills Students Need for the Future that we need to help them learn" in which I described what I, and other research, felt were the most important skills for students to learn to succeed in the future. It also showed that these same skills were important to employers for their employees to have.
Here is a nice poster showing 7 Key Skills for Employability. Google Apps, with the right assignments and coaching from the teachers, can be used to help students foster these skills through projects, collaboration, teamwork, research and writing.
