Skills and competencies for knowmadic workers
KNOWMAD: nomadic knowledge and innovation worker Five trends that can be used to explore the conditions necessary to ensure “multi-skilled profiles” and “multi-contextual learning practices” for an expanded understanding of education: -The mismatch between formal education and the challenges of an innovation-based society (informal and flexible learning approaches); -The shift from what we learn to how we learn (lifelong, self-learning, and learning to learn); -The fluctuating relationship between digital technologies and content (ICT and critical thinking skills and new literacies); -The changing conceptions of space-time and a lifelong learning environment (which is rarely time or context dependent); and, -The development of soft skills (global, tacit, and social).
