Abstract

Highly qualified and competent teachers are the key to excellent education systems. Therefore in this 21st century industrial era 4.0, an education department, which prepares its students to be able to effectively teach and fruitfully educate their future students in the borderless information technology, does not merely need to meet the needs of industry, but also to ensure the best potential student experience. This paper is a report of observation and self-reflection of eleven pre-service teachers on whether or not they were ready to apply one of the 4Cs (critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication) in the 21st-century education. The emphasis of the study was the third C, collaboration. The result of this study depicts that even though they preferred to work in groups, mostly, they were not yet ready to work together with their peers to achieve a certain goal.
