Charles Fadel, Maya Bialik and Bernie Trilling

This book gives readers a clear, actionable framework of competencies needed for the 21st century. Rather than presenting a one-size-fits-all list of what pupils should learn, readers are instead given separate areas in which educators, policy makers and learners can establish what they should be learning, in their individual context and for their future.

The framework focuses on knowledge, what to know and understand; skills, how to use that knowledge; character, how to behave and engage in the world; and meta-learning, how to reflect on and adapt by continuing to learn and grow.

It addresses redesigning education for a transforming world, linking this with education goals for the 21st century.

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
