One of the most important goals of modern education is to develop the dispositions and skills necessary for life-long independent learning. As pointed out by the European Council (2018), though learning by heart, memorizing facts or concepts is still an important skill, it is not sufficient to survive and thrive in modern knowledge-based societies. Much more crucial become these abilities which serve as tools for solving complex, interdisciplinary problems, such as: critical and creative thinking, formulating problems, predicting, drawing conclusions, computational thinking, planning and evaluating one’s own learning, generating new ideas or sharing/discussing knowledge with others.
