Star Wars predicted it, all those years ago.
And they’re not in a far-off galaxy anymore. They’re here, now. And while it’s easy to fear what we don’t know, it’s much better to prepare for it.
The same goes for educators. This is an opportunity to become technology-savvy teachers, to use it as an educational advantage.
As a society, we’re on the crest of a whole new wave of technology. It’s already entered our everyday lives. And it’s already reaching the classrooms and workforce.
But just like some personalities are geared towards certain fields and professions, the same goes for the way we learn.
Some students will embrace and learn technology. Others will resist it. The Owls of the class will thrive on facts, systems and structures. Peacocks just want to be the centre of attention.
A personality test can unveil how your students respond to change and accept new dynamics. As the teacher, knowing this can help you adapt your lessons, what you cover, and how you best prepare your students for the future.
Speaking of adaptability…
As we move into a new phase of living and learning (with robots, automation and the Internet of Things), soft HUMAN skills are critical.
Yes, having a technical aptitude will be necessary, but more importantly, it’s the soft skills that will help young people.
This includes adaptability, resilience, communication skills, problem-solving, and resourcefulness. Future-proofing will be a phrase we see more of. At its core, it means checking in with yourself regularly and objectively exploring your strengths and weaknesses… to continue growing, evolving, and adjusting to the current environment.
In other words, adaptability.
This is where personality insights come into play. It deconstructs your personality, showing you how you think, communicate, and act. This social data is the most important set of insights you’ll ever learn.
And no, it’s not as hard as you think to uncover.
Every classroom can benefit from using Tick’s personality profile questionnaires. For your senior students, our Jobfit tools will be useful. These personality tools will help your students learn more about themselves, so they can make better decisions… from the way they learn to the career path they take.
And of course, in everyday life.
