Nowadays, students deal with technology almost in everything. Because of that they are different .Their needs, wishes and thoughts are different from old students.
This new generation has many technology facilities, because of that their way
of thinking we should as teachers to understand it .if we can
understand How our students think?.So we can help them to make many great things in their life.

But even with this technology age .Our students should have these six skills at least to overcome life challenges. Let’s take these skills one by one.

Able to read, Students should have the ability to read and understand what they read .They should know how to choose
what fit their ability to understand while they are choosing their books. Also, they should know how to read silently .Books will not lose its value even with this technology age. Students should understand that they cannot improve their understanding
without reading. In Islam reading is very important.

“Read!” the voice resonated in the cave of Mount Hira’ for the third time. The man called Muhammad froze, mostly in fear and confusion in the arms of Arch Angel Gabriel. When he found his voice, he told the angel he did not know how to read.

“Read, in the name of thy Lord who created, man from a clot. Read, for your Lord is most Generous, who teaches by means of the pen, teaches man what they know not,” (al-‘Alaq: 1-5)

The man soon to be known as Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) received the
first revelation of the holy Qur’an – Islam’s Holy Scripture that remain suntainted and unchanged until this very day. The underlying message of the Qur’an remains too – “read.”
Able to write, Students should know first, how to spell words .Then how to describe these words .After that how to make good sentence .Later, to know How to make simple sentence. Then knowing how to build complicated sentences.Finally, knowing how to make a good paragraph .These will make them able to be a good example of skilful students.

Able to type, the world is changing. Technology becomes an essential part in our life, and computers take a place and time in everyone’s life. That means that learning to use them becomes important to each student. Because of that students should learn
how to type and deal with computer devices.

Able to “listen”not just “hearing” teachers’ words .There is a big difference between hearing and listening. Hearing is simply the act of perceiving sound by the ear. If you are not hearing-impaired, hearing simply happens. Listening, however, is something you consciously choose to do.Listening requires concentration so that your brain processes meaning from words and sentences. Listening leads to learning. Because of that we need students who are listening not just hearing us.

Able to think critically, students should know how to think critically. It means not simply accepting information at face value in a non-critical or non-evaluating way. Also if he makes any mistakes in his learning, he should learn from his errors .and avoid them in the future and not accepting it in the future.

Able to communicate with others effectively, students always needs help from teachers and his classmates. Because of
that, he should make a good relationship with them .So that he can get benefit of them.
