2017.01.01 Let's start from the very beginning ... IntelligencingCoreSkills?

We have been thinking quite a lot lately and to start writing this post, I would like to begin by thanking you dear reader for taking time to go through these line.

As we were saying -or shall we be even more precise and go with "writing"- the nature of the present blog shall be focused on Core Skills, a topic that have invaded our thoughts and line of research to be utterly honest, we feel very committed to share our findings with you all -wherever you might be in the world-.

Paraphrasing Aristotle "We are what we repeatedly do" so let's take that line as our motto for 2017, which has started just the way we planned. So far, so good.

Now, in true honesty, this blog was meant to start last year, but it is said that there is always a reason for something to happen or not to happen as in the current case, and yet, we could not feel better for how things have turned out.

Last week, the last week of 2016, we came across rather mysteriously with a new terminology, that we are certain is not officially recognised yet, ===hahaha that is us being optimistic heyhoo=== and we intelligently believe in intelligencing ... that is correct dear reader, yes! it is not a typo we have intentionally put out there, but a conscious pick in our terminology.

2017 has been named the year we are thinking, reflecting, philosophying about "intelligence as a verb" -a concept we first heard on a Lecture given on Intelligence as a Superconcept by Mr. David Erasmus on 6 December 2017 at University College London BASc  -- however and to be clear we are to focus our yearly project research and that rational in the context of Core Skills not only for 21st Century as many people are saying around, but we us all. This is the reason why we have called this blog "IntelligencingCoreSkills".

On our last working day last year, we were discussing the concept with a college newbie who had very strong and extremely valid views on the way young people should be not only taught but also assessed in the current context. Most interesting and a couple of hours we certainly most certainly value.

At this point we would like to Thank You Dear Reader for your time and your future input, leaving you -for now and until tomorrow- with one of our favourite quotes indeed:

Wherever there are beginners and experts, old and young, there is some kind of learning going on, some kind of teaching. We are all pupils and we are all teachers.
