The GEII team launched and discussed their first GEII book on Teaching and Learning for the Twenty First Century at an event organised by the Harvard Alumni Association and the Young Arab Leaders Association at the Ismaili Centre in Dubai.
This book describes how different nations have defined the core competencies and skills that young people will need in order to thrive in the twenty-first century, and how those nations have fashioned educational policies and curricula meant to promote those skills. The book examines six countries—Chile, China, India, Mexico, Singapore, and the United States—exploring how each one defines, supports, and cultivates those competencies that students will need in order to succeed in the current century.
