Abstract [en]

This paper is concerned with teacher education students’ views on 21st century skills. Today, western societies are becoming more and more reliant on digital technologies as digital technology is present in many aspects of everyday life. As these technologies become ubiquitous, the skills to use them and to function in a highly digitalized society are becoming important. One way to label the skills required is 21st-century skills. However, no matter what the label, the responsibility to make sure that present and future citizens have the digital skills they need falls to schools in general and teachers in particular. This paper presents a study on teacher education students views on 21st century skills, as a way to further the understanding of how these skills become part of the work in schools.  Data for this paper come from a questionnaire consisting of six open questions presented to student teachers (n=81). The questions concerned the students’ views on the 21st century skills they use in their everyday life and their views on 21st century skills in relation to their teacher education, their future work as teachers, and their future students. An early analysis shows variation in the way student teachers view their own 21st century skills and their future school students’ skills. A conclusion that can be drawn is that student teachers seem to give voice to the complexities in including 21st century skills in their future teaching.
