ICT/STEM: 21st Century Skills

What are 21st Century Skills? Technical skills with computing and hardware, knowledge of biology, chemistry, physics, and other sciences – these skills prepare students to work in growth sectors in Cambodia. Other skills such as critical thinking, creative problem solving, and new knowledge generation are in demand in Southeast Asia’s economies. CFC students are learning all of the above, often in classrooms that integrate hard and soft skills as well as academic content and technical prowess.

How do we do this?

  • Investment in infrastructure: equipment, connectivity
  • Investment in skilled coordinators, program managers, and specialized teachers
  • Investment in training for teachers, administrators, and staff
  • Creating and sharing curriculum (conferences, open training)
  • Collaborating with the Ministry of Education, local schools and other NGOs to expand the reach of these tools
  • Building time in the teaching schedule to implement new methods, skills, and areas of study

Seeing Results

  • All junior and senior high schools feature fully-equipped technology labs
  • Consistently higher grades in the sciences on the national exam
  • More students choosing to study science and technology
  • Teachers integrate technology across the STEM curriculum
  • The Ministry of Education points to our schools as the model for skills integration
  • Utilization of hands-on experiments and investigation across subject areas
  • Cambodian government investment through IT personnel

Goals for the Future

  • Increase workforce-readiness and academic skills so that our students can work in growth fields throughout the region as their country joins ASEAN nations
  • All students graduate with the skills necessary to be competitive for post-secondary study and skilled jobs
