The curriculum of the 21st Century should have the goal of producing innovative, inquiry-driven, relevant practices in education, which makes use of multiple literacies and combining the tools of technology with the skills of critical thinking, to stimulate authentic learning opportunities for all learners anywhere, anytime. This curriculum should empower individuals to become collaborators and creators of solutions to global problems. The technology and tools used in education could become obsolete within decades; therefore the curriculum of the 21st Century should enable learners to become lifelong learners, according to opinions on the blog site Edtech Digest (http://edtechdigest.wordpress.com/2010/09/22/21-definitions-for-a-21st-century-education/).
Learning becomes now a lifelong process of coping with change – in the environment, technology, education and professions, to name a few. With the rate of information growth increasing continuously, it can be argued that education must place less emphasis on the amount of material memorised and much more emphasis on drawing connections, thinking through and solving problems. Learning how to learn is becoming the foundation of education in the 21st Century (Rodgers, M. et al., 2006).
