Delivering the 21st Century Competencies
Teachers must prepare
Collaborating with others and connecting through technology are essential skills in a knowledge-based economy. The assessment and teaching of 21st-century skills project brought together more than 250 researchers across 60 institutions worldwide who categorized 21st-century competencies that are needed internationally into four broad categories:
1. Ways of thinking. creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making and learning
2. Ways of working. communication and collaboration
3. Tools for working. information and communications technology (ICT) and information literacy
4. Skills for living in the world. citizenship, life and career, and personal and social responsibility
The changes in the demand for competencies have strong implications on the competence which teachers need to obtain to effectively teach 21st-century skills to their students. The kind of education needed today entails teachers to be high-level knowledge workers who continuously advance their own professional growth as well as that of their profession. Teachers need to be agents of innovation to make students use their higher level of thinking to solve challenges.
