This website and its contents have been created by education consultant, Hannah Young. I am driven by a commitment to the development of 21st century skills that are essential for education and professional success. Understanding and practising the 21st century skills that involve creative, critical and strategic thinking along with the ability to communicate and collaborate enable us to become responsible global citizens with the capabilities to create a more sustainable world.
I provide high quality training for young people and professionals to hone their 21st century skills. My digital products are designed to develop the core competencies of critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, communication and collaboration. The development of such skills helps to develop the character qualities of curiosity, initiative, persistence/grit, adaptability, leadership and social and cultural awareness.
The 21st century requires students and professionals with high levels of these core competencies and characteristics. Developing our human edge is the only way that we can survive and thrive in a future dominated by Artificial Intelligence.
I currently offer free educational resources under a Creative Commons License (Attribution-Non-Commercial CC BY-NC) that present real world issues along with thinking strategies to evaluate and solve them. You can access a selection of my work via my digital portfolio here.
I have developed online video courses that will develop thinking skills. You can find the Innovative Problem Solving Course here. This is suitable for those at any education or career stage interested in self and professional development.
