About the Program

Summary

The OECD’s The Future of Education and Skills 2030 project positions education as equipping learners with agency and a sense of purpose, and the competencies they need to shape their own lives and contribute to the lives of others.

The project invites educators to find out how best to do so as well as find answers to:

Each day of Yarning 2020: education with our neighbours, part 2 will have a different focus:

Yarning 2020: education with our neighbours, part 2 brings Pacific educators together to learn with and learn from each other about nature of 21st skills and why they are important, how they can be incorporated into curriculum design and enacted, and to reflect on the role of teachers in developing adaptable learners.
