3 skills

I've been asking everyone the following question:

If you could learn any 3 skills, what would they be? This means not that they would be instantly transmitted to you, but rather that you'd be set up with the tools, experts, and general environment to facilitate learning these skills as best as possible.

Also, skills that are superpowers (like X-ray vision or the ability to fly) don't count. For context, I've been thinking lately about ways to facilitate adult-to-adult teaching, and am curious about what skills people would find empowering to learn.

The Kaleidoscope Center is opening!

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

The Kaleidoscope Center is a new, alternative to school for kids ages 5 - 13 opening in September 2008. The center will be an environment where kids learn by doing and making! We believe that when kids are creatively engaged and part of a happy, empowering, and supportive community, their natural love of learning will take flight and their education will flourish.
