Saavedra and  Opfer  (2012)  argue that learners must hone their skills and enhance their learning as a  matter of urgency to be able to address persistent global challenges.  However,  in spite of worldwide agreement that learners need skills such as critical thinking and the ability to communicate effectively,  innovate and solve problems through negotiation and collaboration,  pedagogy has not adapted to address these new challenges (UNESCO, 2015:2).
