Learning for the future
What are the skills, knowledge, attitudes, and values that learners need to thrive in and shape their world? How can education systems help learners develop these attributes, preparing them for lifelong learning as informed and critical thinkers?
It is essential that our schools and early childhood centres empower learners with the agency to shape, and find success in, their future lives. Learners need support in developing not only knowledge and skills but also attitudes and values that will guide them to contribute to the world as active citizens. Additionally, they need opportunities to nurture their creative thinking abilities to find innovative solutions to current and future problems.
