We focus on 21st Century Skills – and rightly so.  But let us not forget to focus on even more fundamental, vital prerequisites; those things that enable and empower:  namely a sense of place, a sense of belonging and a sense of self.  In that vein, I recommend a recent blog post by Professor Kathryn Riley to you. Her work shines an important light on this  essential topic.
