This People for Education Report is an important read.
From the report:
"Up to now, future-ready skills and competencies have gone by a variety of
labels including soft skills, 21st century skills, transferable skills, and global
competencies (British Columbia Ministry of Education, 2017; OECD, 2018;
RBC, 2018; Waddell et al., 2018). People for Education refers to them as
The New Basics."
1. Thinking Creatively and critically
2. Developing a Sense of Self and Society
3. Communicating Effectively
4. Learning to learn
In Ontario "future ready" skills are referred to by the Ministry of Education as "transferable skills" including,
1. critical thinking
2. social-emotional skills
4. digital literacy
While 1, 2 and 5 in both lists are a match, 3 & 4 are not. Adaptability & Digital Literacy are both open to interpretation more than the other 3 so it remains to be seen how these terms will be used in curriculum documents.
