21st Century Competencies



Asia Society

As part of the Global Cities Education Network, the Center for Global Education at Asia Society convened a working group of leaders from major cities in Asia and in North America to discuss approaches to building education systems that support the development of 21st century competencies. PSA documented the efforts of the working group to identify system-building approaches—including system-building across the formal and non-formal sectors—to integrating 21st century competencies throughout a student’s educational experience. In a second phase of the work PSA explored strategies used by city teams to test and refine strategies in schools and classrooms to promote 21st century competencies.
