key competencies for the 21st century
I am a Resource Teacher:Learning & Behaviour in New Zealand. A new national school curriculum has been introduced into schools this year. A key feature of this is the Key Competencies. These have come from the OECD Defining and Selecting Key Competencies project and in the NZ curriculum have been defined as Thinking, Using language symbols and text, Relating to others, Managing self and Participating and contributing.
I'm aware that other countries are also developing in similar directions so would be interested in hearing what is happening elsewhere.
