Globalization and technology are two features of the modern world impacting all activity, and the resultant effect on education is causing much to be questioned about the teaching and learning paradigm. Ways in which the learning experience must change in response to changing global demands placed on societies and economies forms a large part of the current discourse around reforming education. This chapter puts forward a definition of globalization, 21st century skills, and the four main competencies known as the 4Cs, and then makes links between these phenomena as a way of understanding the digitization of education. The connections are possible through a process of gathering reflections and experiences from experienced educational practitioners.
