A profile of the skills, attitudes and competences that will be developed with learners in the 21st century. This will require a paradigm shift in most schools from knowledge inculcation (filling the empty vessels with facts) to developing opportunities to develop attitudes, skills and competences where the learner works autonomously and in groups to research, develop and present optimum solutions to real world problems which make school based learning relevant to the world beyond school.
