ICTs in Education - Drivers of Innovation and Enablers towards Knowledge Society Development

1,915 views

Published on

The 21st century education context is generally characterised by three elements that constitute what is called the 21st Century Learning Framework. As can be deduced the key-defining feature of 21st Century education is that it is learner-centred. The first element of such a framework is Content Knowledge, or Foundational Knowledge that regroups core content knowledge, ICT skills and inter-disciplinary knowledge acquisition and development. The second component is about Learning and Innovation skills, that can be referred to a meta knowledge. This is about the learner’s ability to demonstrate innovative and creative skills, problem solving abilities and critical thinking as well as soft skills (communication and collaboration). The third element concerns humanism or life skills and values. It enables learners to acquire necessary skills to deal with the complex life and work environment in the globalised and information-driven world.
