image of Schools for 21st-Century Learners

Successful education systems are those that promote leadership at all levels, thereby encouraging teachers and principals, regardless of the formal positions they occupy, to lead innovation in the classroom, the school and the system as a whole. This report summarises evidence from the OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey and the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment that underpins the three themes of the 2015 International Summit on the Teaching Profession: school leadership, teachers’ self-efficacy and innovation in education. It also offers examples from around the world of how some schools are introducing innovative ways of teaching and learning to better equip students with the skills they need to participate fully in 21st-century global economies.

Executive summary

What do you need to create a responsive 21st-century school? Three key ingredients are teachers who are confident in their ability to teach, a willingness to innovate, and strong school leaders who establish the conditions in their schools that enable the former two ingredients to flourish. This report, Schools for 21st-Century Learners: Strong Leaders, Confident Teachers, Innovative Approaches, uses evidence from the OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS), the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), and the OECD Innovative Learning Environments project to identify school- and system-level policies that promote effective school leadership, strengthen teacher’s sense of self-efficacy, and encourage innovation in creating 21st-century learning environments.
