Abstract

Teacher education has an important role in preparing new teachers with adequate 21st century skills, i.e. skills for learning, creative and critical thinking, collaboration, also for the ability to take advances of ICT. However, the current teacher education do not necessarily provide pre-service teachers with these skills. For this purpose more long-term research and development work is needed. The goal of this project is to provide teacher education information and tools for being able to provide their pre-service teachers with better abilities and readiness to work as a teacher in society today and in the future. For this purpose the aim is to study the structure and development of pre-service teachers’ 21st century skills. During the follow-up study the effectiveness of the different pedagogical approaches for developing these skills will also be investigated.
