Qudwa Global Survey Reveals Emotional Soft Skills are More Important Success Factors than Hard Skills for Teachers of the Future
800 leading educators from 68 countries will convene at Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi next month to discuss transformational, behavioural and technology trends in education under the theme of Teaching for Tomorrow.
Qudwa 2017, a global teachers forum, conducted a survey that uncovered key insights about the factors that will set teachers up for future success, as new technologies and hybrid teaching models play increasingly prevalent roles in classrooms.
A global survey of registered participants for this years’ forum revealed that teachers view soft skills, like understanding individual needs of students; knowledge and enthusiasm for subject matter; and strong communication skills, as the top priority skills for teachers to succeed in the future. Harder skills that focus on knowledge and understanding of technology were less critical success factors.
One key finding showed that while 90.16% of teachers use laptops or tablets in their classrooms and 78.24% use social media for educational purposes, only 18.89% agreed that “an excellent command of current and future technologies” was the most important factor for teachers to succeed in the classroom of the future. Almost half of the respondents, 45.57%, however recognized “strong knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject matter” as the top success factor.
A similar question further validated this insight, revealing that 41.40% of participants recognized “good knowledge of technology (laptops, tablets) to increase student performance” as the least important factor to teacher success, whereas 66.01% agreed that “an ability to understand the individual needs of each student” was the most important teaching skill of the future.
Mohamed Khalifa Al Neaimi, Director of Education Affairs Office at the Crown Prince Court of Abu Dhabi remarked: “These are exactly the types of surprising insights we want to uncover at Qudwa. We need to better understand this perceived disconnect and make sure we are preparing teachers with the right balance of technical know-how that this digital age demands, and the emotional intelligence to make learning a truly personal experience for everyone.”
The two-day event is organized under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and will take place October 7 and 8 in Abu Dhabi.
