16 competenze da sviluppare a scuola (secondo il WEF)

E il settore dell’educazione deve stare al passo con il cambiamento, abituando gli studenti ad acquisire capacità nuove, idonee al mercato del lavoro che l’economia dell’innovazione produce.

Oggi il lavoro richiede un mix di competenze più variegato rispetto al passato. Prendendo come unità di misura alcune di queste competenze, il report ha rivelato enormi differenze tra le competenze degli studenti, non solo in aree come la matematica e la scienza, ma anche in creatività e pensiero critico.

What is a Competency Again, these definitions were extracted from a number of different sources: Competencies, therefore, may incorporate a skill, but are MORE than the skill, they include abilities and behaviours, as well as knowledge that is fundamental to the use of a skill.
