Critical Factors for Success in the 21st Century http://www.ed.gov/edblogs/technology/research/ How can educational settings and technologies help kids develop the non-cognitive skills (aka non-content knowledge) and hardiness to deal with life's rainy days?
That's the subject of a 90+ page draft report from the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Educational Technology, "Promoting Grit, Tenacity, and Perseverance: Critical Factors for Success in the 21st Century."
This report takes a close look at a core set of noncognitive factors—grit, tenacity, and perseverance—that are essential to an individual’s capacity to strive for and succeed at important goals, and to persist in the face of an array of challenges encountered throughout schooling and life.

Education Research Digests https://www.education.gov.uk/schools/toolsandinitiatives/tripsresearchdigests Research Informed Practice Digests offer easy access to essential research findings for teachers, governors, parents and all those who support them in the education of school age students.
The digests are mostly based on research published in research journals, this is because publication there means studies have already been scrutinised for academic rigour.
We also appraise the studies to ensure that they provide strong evidence directly relevant to practice in schools and we check that the authors of the original study believe that the digest presents a faithful picture of their work.
