How should education be structured to meet the needs of students in this 21st century world? How do we now define “School”, “Teacher” “Student” and ″Curriculum″?
Schools in the 21st century will be laced with a project–based curriculum for life aimed at engaging students in addressing real–world problems, issues important to humanity, and questions that matter.
This is a dramatic departure from the factory-model education of the past. It is abandonment, finally, of textbook–driven, teacher-centered, paper and pencil schooling. It means a new way of understanding the concept of “knowledge”, a new definition of the “educated person”. A new way of designing and delivering the curriculum is required.
How can Cyprus continue to compete and survive in a global economy if the entering workforce is made up of high school graduates who lack the new skills they need, and of university graduates who are mostly “adequate” rather than “excellent”?
Cypriot educational institutions both at primary and secondary levels need to face the challenge of reforming curricula and instruction. All educational stakeholders recognize that it is time for tremendous improvements for in the readiness of new workforce entrants. “Excellence” is the standard for global competitiveness. Educational systems in Cyprus need to develop strategies that connect with students in the 21st century classrooms and workplaces.
This seminar will offer valuable insight to school principals, educational curriculum consultants and master trainers of primary and secondary schools in Cyprus how to transform and develop educational practices that will lead their students towards the 21st century skills.
