CCR launches new book at OECD and IBO; praised by Andreas Schleicher, Carol Dweck and many other education thought leaders

The CCR is pleased to announce that its new book “Four-Dimensional Education” will be officially introduced at an event hosted at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).  The presentation by Mr. Fadel will be held at OECD’s Paris headquarters on Jan. 18 from 14:30-15:30 (local time) at the closure of the Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) meeting with OECD Ambassadors.  Mr. Fadel will also present “Four-Dimensional Education“ at the International Baccalaureate Organization in The Hague on Jan. 19 at 14:00-15:30 AM (local time).

“’Four-Dimensional Education’ is a clear and actionable, first-of-its-kind organizing framework of competencies needed” states Andreas Schleicher, Director for Education and Skills at OECD, in his prologue for the book.  A short video introduction by Mr. Schleicher can be viewed here.

Stanford University professor Carol Dweck describes the book as: “A very thoughtful treatment of the competencies our students need to thrive in today’s (and tomorrow’s) world. This book will help educators understand and navigate the critical choices we are facing.

Additional praise for “Four-Dimensional Education” from reviewers from Harvard, MIT, Google, IBM, and many other education thought leaders may be found here.

“Four-Dimensional Education” discusses the fundamental question posed by CCR: “What should students learn for the 21st century?” The  book offers a framework describing the dimensions – Knowledge, Skills, Character, and Meta-Learning – of a relevant 21st century curriculum required to promote fulfilled individuals, sustainable societies and productive economies:
