Reconstructing the Global Education and Learning Strategies to Enhance 21st Century Learning Skills: Learning Experience on a Global Perspective Across Curriculum
Dr. Teck Choon,TEO; Prof. Dr. Kim Cheng Patrick, LOW

This study examines a private educational institution (PEI) in Singapore on its global education and learning strategies, with the intent of uncovering strategies on new learning experience of students globally. As Suto and Eccles (2014) noted that the inter-disciplinary skills most commonly regarded as essential for the 21st Century are problem-solving, ICT operations and concepts, communication, collaboration, and information literacy. Given the technological advances, the teaching and learning strategies have been linked to learning experiences. For example, the hub and spoke TNE (Trans-National Education) model is increasingly critical that the programmes offered between the destinations are aligned as well. To meet some of the learning outcomes and to create a collaborative value chain, there must be more interaction between the destination campuses. Programmes schedules and project must now be aligned; student projects can now be cross-destination with students interacting with one another through skype and learning experience conference calls to meet to discuss projects for a collaborative project presentation, led by teachers on both sides. Interaction between teachers in different destinations becomes a key component for success in classrooms and student experience. Conversely, the ability of school to assess student 21st century skills via ICT and LMS will become acutely relevant and appropriate in the teaching and learning communities.
