21st century education. For every child.
Integrating 21st century-skills and education
In today’s rapidly evolving world, traditional education alone is no longer
enough to prepare children for the challenges and opportunities of the
21st-century. As Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funders in India, you
have a unique opportunity to donate to the holistic development of India’s
children by supporting initiatives that integrate 21st-century skills into
education. By equipping students with the skills they need to thrive
in the digital age, we can empower them to become active contributors
to India’s growth and development.
Understanding 21st-Century Skills
The term 21st-century skills refers to a set of abilities that are essential for
success in the modern world. These skills go beyond academic knowledge
and encompass a range of competencies, including critical thinking,
problem-solving, collaboration, communication, digital literacy, creativity,
and adaptability. Integrating these skills into the education system helps
students develop well-rounded abilities relevant to their future careers
and personal lives.
Why Integrating 21st-Century Skills Matters
- Workforce Readiness: The job market is becoming increasingly
dynamic and technology-driven. By fostering 21st-century skills, students
are better prepared for the demands of the modern workplace, ensuring
they can adapt to changing job requirements and excel in their careers.
- Global Competitiveness: India’s position in the global economy relies
on its ability to produce a skilled workforce. Integrating 21st century
skills helps students compete on a global scale by fostering innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurial thinking.
Opportunity for CSR Funders
The Learning Yogi Foundation is committed to providing high-quality
education to every child. Regardless of their circumstances of birth.
Learning Yogi Foundation is reinventing the education system around the
world for the 21st-century. We believe that the purpose of education
in the 21st-century is not just to learn, but to learn how to learn. Our
award-winning product, the Atlas Mission, is a first-of-its-kind educational
game designed to help children learn all the curricular and non-curricular skills
needed to succeed in the 21st-century.
As critical as core skills in reading, math and science are, it is not enough
for children to only be familiar with them. The education system today doesn’t
factor in the importance of skill-based learning.
Creativity, conflict resolution, confidence, critical thinking, teamwork and
problem-solving is critical to 21st-century learning. A strong curricular-based
education reduces the risk of poverty, but life skills enable a child to make
the right choices and become leaders of tomorrow.
Is education enough to be a leader? With millions of children worldwide
struggling in the same job market, it’s the leadership skills they bring to
the table that set them apart from the rest.
We are enabling an ecosystem where every child actually has equal
opportunities in this world, a platform where every child is equipped with
the necessary skills to take responsibility and end the cycle of poverty,
once and for all.
Integrating 21st-century skills into education is crucial for preparing Indian
students to thrive in an increasingly complex and interconnected world. As
CSR funders in India, your investment in initiatives that foster these skills
can have a profound and lasting impact on the nation’s future. By equipping
students with the tools they need to succeed, we can nurture a generation of empowered individuals who will drive innovation, social progress,
and economic growth in India. Let us come together to shape a brighter
future for India and its youth through the integration of 21st-century skills
