The more I think about lifelong learning skills, the more inclined I am to relate those characteristics to what makes a product beneficial to its users over the long haul. Some skills are beneficial to master because they are important for success throughout the different phases of life. A lifelong product is one that is relevant and applicable in spite of all the transitions that one needs to experience in life, not forgetting technological advancements. It may be a truism but change is the only constant in life. We live in a fluid world where things are constantly in a state of flux. A lot of dynamism and adaptability traits are therefore needed to stay relevant and competitive.
Lee Watanabe-Crockett, in a write-up on beneficial learning skills, posits that working in groups is the hallmark of the digital age. In school, in addition to individual assignments, group projects and teamwork form an integral part of classroom work and assessment. The ability to be a good team player and to work well with others in a group setting at the workplace is necessary for success and optimum productivity.
