Jurisdictions around the world are exploring how to prepare their students to lead fulfilling lives, be productive contributors in a knowledge economy, and thrive in an information and technology-intensive globalized world.
Increasingly, global competencies (e.g. transferrable skills), are being recognized by researchers and employers as essential for student success in an interconnected world.
