Abstract

Extract:
The December 2011 issue of Rolling Stone magazine included an article about a child prodigy. The thirteen-year-old featured is a full-time university engineering student. In his spare time he designs apps which he sells to Apple. He has developed his creativity over years of sketching and annotating his ideas and inventions.

Annotating inventions is not only an activity for the gifted. It is an activity that many children will happily undertake and that enables children to develop graduate attributes. All universities have some variation of graduate attributes. These are the skills and capacities that employers expect of university graduates, no matter which discipline the learner has studied.
