INTERNATIONAL SKILLS AND COMPETENCIES: TOOLS FOR TEACHING IN SECONDARY EDUCATION

S.L. Jones

University of Hull (UNITED KINGDOM)
In a shrinking, more connected world where we all face common challenges, such as those posed by economic recessions, mass migration or climate change, the acquisition of international skills and transversal competencies has become increasingly important (OECD, 2009; Facer, 2011; Clifford and Montgomery, 2011; Picardo, 2012). However, there is a paucity of research and tools that assist in this acquisition of such skills and competencies at secondary education level. This paper addresses this challenge, presenting the research findings and tangible outputs from an Erasmus+ funded KA2 project. These include a student survey to determine both the skills and values of students regarding international skills; a set of digital books to enable students to learn about international skills and competencies; a teacher toolkit for teaching international skills in secondary education and finally an overview of the research process that has informed the creation and development of these outputs.
