21st Century Skills

Roger Blamire, Senior Advisor to European Schoolnet, provides in a 9:01min video a clear introduction to what is commonly referred to as 21st Century Skills.

Roger defines Skills as expertise or the ability to do something well. On the other hand, Competences are a combination of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that can be applied effectively to a particular domain.

The 8 EU Key Competences for lifelong learning are:

  1. Communication in the mother tongue
  2. Communication in foreign languages
  3. Mathematical competence and basic competences in science and technology
  4. Digital competences
  5. Learn to learn
  6. Social and civic competences
  7. Sense of initiative and entrepreneurship
  8. Cultural awareness and expression
