Teachers are facilitators of learning

A teacher is a facilitator who helps learners explore their environment as they discover new concepts and ideas. In this emerging era, teachers should also help students develop competencies you can’t always put into words. Skills such as collaboration, initiative, self-motivation, and leadership are important for students to prepare for the world beyond school.

Here are the skills that students need to develop to be successful in the future:

1. Collaboration

People are now able to collaborate with people all over the world, not just those who live nearby. Collaboration enables people to accomplish much more than they could have on their own. Good collaboration depends on being able to work smoothly with others, drawing on mutual strengths and sharing knowledge.
