OECD’s Skills Strategy launch and Yearbook 2012 feature CCR’s invited blog and article respectively

The OECD’s Skills Strategy official launch includes CCR’s invited blog submission “What should students learn in the 21st century?”

Further, the OECD’s Yearbook 2012 features the CCR article “Skills and Innovation.”

OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría, said: “Skills have become the global currency of 21st Century economies. They transform lives and drive economies. Governments must invest more effectively in the education and skills that people will need in tomorrow’s workplace. They need to deploy their talent pool more strategically so that these investments translate into better jobs and better lives. Achieving this is everyone’s business, and employers and unions have a central role to play.”

CCR founder’s seminal book 21st Century Skills (Wiley, 2009) is now available in Chinese (classical and simplified), Korean and Russian, further reflecting the global interest in the topic.
