With the global economy changing daily, the jobs that exist for today’s students may not exist tomorrow or by the time they enter the workforce. To succeed in this ever-changing world, students need to be able to think like entrepreneurs: resourceful, flexible, creative and global.
Researcher and Professor Yong Zhao explores techniques and concepts to help teachers, administrators and parents ready students for the global workforce. Zhao addresses the implementation of national curriculums, test scores and rigid education structures, and their impact on innovative thinking by students. World Class Learners strives to unlock the secrets to cultivating independent thinkers who are willing and able to use their learning differently to create jobs, make meaningful decisions, and contribute positively to the globalised society. Throughout these pages Zhao shows teachers, administrators and parents how to:
- Understand the entrepreneurial spirit and harness it
- Foster student autonomy and leadership
- Champion inventive learners with necessary resources
- Develop global partners and resources
World Class Learners has everything needed to help turn today’s students into tomorrow’s global entrepreneurs.
