In 2013, the Trustees of Newark Academy issued a five-year strategic plan that included a call for an expansion of program initiatives aimed at helping NA students develop “the skills and qualities needed to meet the challenges of a complex, rapidly changing global environment.” These skills include:

Analytical, creative thinking and problem-solving
Complex oral and written communication
Leadership and teamwork
Digital and quantitative literacy
Global perspective
Adaptability, initiative and risk-taking
Integrity and ethical decision-making
Resilience and perseverance

Speakers at TEDxNewarkAcademy spoke about experiences which have allowed them to develop, to practice, and/or to teach these skills and about why they value these skills in themselves and in others. In this way, presenters addressed enduring skills for the future by moving beyond the particular “content” of their individual experiences.
