The current knowledge of the 21st century skills and education emphasizes the need for a broader range of skills to complement the basic literacy, numeracy and scientific skills that are currently taught a tour schools.
There is an imminent need for advanced teaching approaches, assessment strategies and reporting or grading systems. There is a need to accommodate new innovative skills and competences within an existing educational structure and curriculum. Schools need to reimagine the learning habitat with an effective integration of Mobile Technology in order to develop higher level skills, to implement appropriate pedagogies, to reevaluate the curriculum, the evaluation strategies, and other instructional features.
As Cyprus belongs to this global technologically emerging community, schools need to foster skills such as creativity, innovation critical thinking, and digital competencies if they want their students to survive in this world of change.
