Study results have shown that the education's three foundations: reading, writing, and mathematics are no longer sufficient to cope with contemporary global transformations, because learning the skills of Knowledge Economy requires the addition of the skills of the 21st century represented in: critical thinking, innovation and creativity, cooperation and participation, awareness of multi-cultures, effective communication, and the ability of effective employment of the tools of knowledge and electronic information, profession and self-reliance.
