Our world today is "glocal", liquid, networked, virtual and polycentric. The shift from traditional mass media to a system of horizontal communication networks organized around the Internet and wireless communication has introduced a multiplicity of communication patterns at the source of a fundamental cultural transformation. The 21st century world is different from that for which the principal education systems were designed. It is not possible anymore to continue offering education in the traditional way. New educational trends are disrupting traditional attitudes towards current models. While the 19th and the 20th centuries were, in education, mainly about standardization, the 21st century is about visualization, customization, cheapification, gamification and some other relevant trends highlighted in the article. Today we are experiencing increasingly global interconnections, associated with some growing local and localized differentiations, as well as we are living a continuing transformation organized around information technologies - that is changing the way we produce, consume, behave, manage, communicate and think. In such a scenario, which are the key-competencies and capacities to be honed in order to foster employability? Which education and training approaches are the most effective? A cornerstone in between employability and self-empowerment is then introduced to the readers: e-REAL.
Keywords: "Glocal" world, trends, key-competencies, learning, people development, e-REAL
