This fall, thousands of 15 year-old students all over the world will sit down at their computers to take the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) examination. The PISA is conducted every year by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in more than 70 countries worldwide. The test aims to assess more than reading, math, and scientific literacy. It has been designed to see how well students can apply 21st century skills to real-life challenges.
The process of expanding the scope of PISA began in 2012, when the problem-solving section was added to measure how well students can use the knowledge and skills learned at school in a broader context.
Now, the PISA for 2015 includes a new section to assess collaborative problem-solving skills, where students work together to combine their knowledge and skills to solve problem situations.
So what is the best way to prepare for the PISA? How can you leverage educational technology to develop key 21st century skills, which will be addressed in future versions of this test?
Join me for an informative webinar, where I’ll explain 21st century skills and how technology can play a key role in the school curriculum to provide essential knowledge and skills to master real-life challenges that students will face now and in the future.
