Educating Learners in the 21st Century
The Melbourne Declaration acknowledges the importance of developing lifelong learners who demonstrate creativity and problem solving skills (Moyle, 2010; Sawyer, 2006). Futurist Alvin Toffler claims: “The illiterate of the 21st Century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.” Have you ever wondered why some people achieve well in life in spite of their school education? Those who may have dropped out? Failed the big exam?
