The last major changes to curriculum were effected in the late 1800’s as a response to the sudden growth in societal and human capital needs. As the world of the 21st century bears little resemblance to that of the 19th century, education curricula need to be deeply redesigned. Adapting to 21st century needs means revisiting the ‘why’ and ‘what’ of curricula and re-evaluating what students really need to know. Focusing on the four dimensions of Knowledge, Skills, Character and Meta-Learning and the interplay between them we can create the future of curricula so that students learn ‘what’ they need.
