Global currency of 21st century

Global currency of 21st century

A generation ago, it can be expected that what teachers teach in classes can last for a lifetime of their students. However, this expectation is less convincing in today’s globally dynamic world. Today, we are living in a world where changes are more rapid than ever.

Now students need education and training for technologies which are not yet invented, for jobs which are not yet created, for economic threats which are not yet borne, for solving issue which are not yet created. Therefore, now we need innovative education, which will determine future prosperity and growth.

Recently, OECD Secretary-General Angel GurrĂ­a, said: “Skills have become the global currency of 21st Century economies.”

In addition, now focus is shifting from qualifications to skills. Thus, in future, returns to an individual and to a society would be mainly determined by skills.
