3 Things Students Should Have Before They Leave High School

George Couros, Connected Principals, Mar 07, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Here are the things George Couros says they should have before they leave high school "to help create opportunities for themselves":

  • a social network with other people in their field of choice
  • a digital portfolio
  • an “about.me” page

I get the general idea, and support it, but I think the description is way too narrow. I'd rather see people have much more than an about.me page and personal portfolio - I think they should have a wider online presence with credentials, tools, artifacts, and whatever else they need. The same with a social network - but not just a 'social network' but wide-ranging interactions with people inside and outside their own field.
