Learning is often referred to as changed behaviour that resulted from experiences. Learning cannot be said to have taken place until learners are able to demonstrate learning behaviour sufficiently. The concept of learning in the twenty-first century is all-inclusive. Many factors and principles of learning must be strictly adhered to before real learning can be observed. Several challenges and attributes of the twenty-first century have great influence on the curriculum (what to learn) and the pedagogies (learning strategies). There is a tight nexus between the societal challenges in the twenty-first century and the competences (knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values) students are expected to acquire to solve the present and emerging problems in the nation. The Sustainable Development Goal 4 projects the indispensability of quality and lifelong education to meet up with the twenty-first century challenges (UNESCO, 2017a) Therefore, the comprehension and practicability of all-inclusive learning is a sure way to achieving sustainable quality education in Nigeria.
