CCR launches new book at OECD and IBO

CCR’s new book Four-Dimensional Education is 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.  He shares additional praise in a short video introduction.

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.”

Reviewers from Harvard, MIT, Google, IBM, and many other education thought leaders shared additional praise.

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.
