– The Ability to Learn Independently: This means taking responsibility for working out what you need to know, and where to find that knowledge. This is an ongoing process in knowledge-based work, because the knowledge base is constantly changing. it could be learning about new equipment, new ways of doing things, or learning who are the people you need to know to get the job done;

– Teamwork and Flexibility: This depends heavily on collaboration and the sharing of knowledge with others in related but independent organizations. Teachers need to know how to work collaboratively, virtually and at a distance, with colleagues, students and partners. The pooling of collective knowledge, problem-solving and implementation requires good teamwork and flexibility in taking on tasks or solving problems that may be outside a narrow job definition but necessary for success;

– Digital Skills: Most knowledge-based activities depend heavily on the use of technology. These skills need to be embedded within the knowledge domain in which the activity takes place. Thus, the use of digital technology needs to be integrated with and evaluated through the knowledge-base of the subject area incorporating digital skills to analyze, evaluate and interpret as required.

– Knowledge Management: Knowledge is not only rapidly changing with new research, new developments, and rapid dissemination of ideas and practices over the internet, but the sources of information are increasing, with a great deal of variability in the reliability or validity of the information. The key skill in a knowledge-based society is knowledge management: how to find, evaluate, analyze, apply and disseminate information, within a particular context.
