Abstract

The importance of preparing learners for the globalized world is being realized by school leaders, teachers, parents and national policymakers all around the world. The flow on impact has seen the introduction of international education programs in schools becoming increasingly popular as education agencies strive to increase their international assessment ratings. In a rapidly evolving, technology-mediated global world, students must not only possess strong skills in areas such as literacy, mathematics and science, but they must also be adept at skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, persistence, collaboration and curiosity. All too often, however, students in many countries are not attaining these skills. In this context, (ie countries with redundant teaching pedagogies, lack of teacher advancement and poor performance as identified by international assessments) this chapter offers insight into how schools are addressing the issue of skills gaps.
