Curricular Promises for a Scientific Community of Alpha Generation By Sujisha E.P. and Dr. M. Jesa

Education not only empowers individuals to contribute meaningfully to their communities and economies but also serves as a driving force in addressing the challenges of the 21st century. The term 21st Century Skills is defined as a comprehensive set of knowledge, skills, work habits, and character traits widely regarded as critical for success in today’s world by educators, school reformers, college professors, employers, and other stakeholders, particularly in collegiate programmes and contemporary careers and workplaces. (The Glossary of Education Reform, 2016). Science Teacher Text, SCERT (Kerala) (2019) recommends various methods for the efficient facilitation of science education. A review of literature in the field was carried out by the authors and the conclusions and recommendations are presented.  When we prepare a curriculum map, certain gaps could be identified with respect to development of the demanded skills at the secondary level. The gap is to be filled with adequate actions. For this, it is imperative that each and every school in Kerala undertakes the work of the government initiative Atal Thinking Labs and Innovation clubs. Participation in Citizen Science Projects also helps to foster such skills in students effectively.

Keywords: 21st century skills, learning skills, life skills, literacy skills, curricular promises in science education.
