Skills for ‘Being’ in a Digital Age
JUNE 3, 2018
I have been puzzling over George Siemens ’ idea that learners need to develop ‘being skills’ if they are to cope with what it means to be human in a digital age. George tells us that learners (humans) need to learn how to participate in this and that this will be through ‘Being skills’ which, as yet, machines can’t succeed at. His work is steeped in philosophy, ethics and scientific research. I wonder if George’s work on ‘being skills’ will cover any of this.
