It is a customary practice of International Scholar to draw attention to and update our students on the
latest developments in the international education sphere. Like most activities around us, international
education is expected to undergo major changes in the years to come. The students of the future will
need to have new competencies and attitudes that are directed at creating a better future. The
Organization for Economic Development and Corporation (OECD), has developed a concept known as
the “OECD 2030 Learning Framework” that is aimed at offering vision and underpinning principles for
