About 21st Century Learning Skills & Education

21st Century Learning Skills refer to the traits that are critically important to learners’ success in today’s challenging job market. Skills you need to hone no matter the age. These skills are in the form of knowledge, habits, competencies and life skills.

Questions to think about: 

  • To what extent are schools and learning institutions preparing our students with the skillset needed for 21st Century?

  • Are schools and institutions adjusting their curricula to meet the demands and challenges of 21st century expectations? Or are they stuck in status quo?  

  • Do schools and learning institutions have a dedicated program for this?

  • What about trained teachers and faculty members who can design lessons and implement programs that focus on 21st Century skills development?

Character Education for the 21st Century

This is particularly important for success and survival in a challenging  post Covid-19 pandemic world. At Mawar, we see this and understand the importance of Character Education for the 21st Century.

 

With that in mind, we developed a special program with the aim to ignite the development of the knowledge, skills and character essential to building 21st Century Learning skillset. The  21st Century Learning Skill and Character Education Program is a special program designed to help students in the East Coast of Malaysia .
