From 21st century skills to 21st century human being

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution to proceedingpeer-review


    In Denmark, in Scandinavia and in all of Europe there is a lot of talk about the skills of the future. But if we want our students to aim for and gain a different learning outcome, we must set new and different standards for the way we teach – and start to walk the talk. The focus of the presentation will be the ideas and experiences of ‘Future Classroom Lab’, which is a ground-breaking initiative promoting new ways of handling the education of the teachers and pedagogues of tomorrow. Media and technologies are inevitable conditions in our everyday life in 2017 and therefore they are conditions that need to be addressed in the training of teachers and pedagogues. Professional understanding and application of technologies and media are thus a key element in the basic professional competences of the teachers and pedagogues of tomorrow. We are all now well underway in our thinking of 21st CLD and we must take the next step, where we stop thinking about skills and competencies and start thinking and acting on the fundamental existential implication of the 21st century. What we need now is not more 21st century skills, but 21st century human beings.
