"The illiterate of the 21st Century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn." - Alvin Toffler

WHY 21st Century Learning?

Today’s students will graduate into a world where the demands of our professional, personal and public lives grow more complicated every year.

An innovation and creativity-driven economy: They will enter a job market that rewards creativity, flexible thinking, on-the-job learning and comfort with technology.

A more globally-connected world: Their classmates and coworkers may live in the same zip code or across the globe.

Information overflow: We get dizzying amounts of information every day. It can be hard to figure out what is reliable and how to use it.

An expanded civic life: citizens are active in physical communities, online and through social media, getting involved in local politics as well as global initiatives.

 

Instead of slowing down, these trends are gaining momentum. As a result, our students need to be more globally aware, better able to navigate the digital world and more engaged as 21st century citizens.

WHAT is 21st Century Learning?

21st Century Skills are a set of academic building blocks—abilities and ways of thinking—that can help kids thrive as 21st century citizens.

As today’s students face higher expectations in both school and the workforce, 21st Century Skills help to prepare students for what they will need to know and be able to do in school and college, at work and throughout all aspects of personal and civic life. Students can build these skills by applying them as they learn regular school subjects. And we know that pointing out these skills will actually increase students’ grasp of what they’re learning, as well their overall engagement in their own education.

 

The following skills can help kids thrive as 21st century citizens:

  • Critial thinking & problem solving,
  • Communication,
  • Collaboration and
  • Creativity and innovation

By developing these set of skills, we help our children become:

  • Informed about and ready to respond to local, national and global issues;
  • Knowledgeable in core academic subjects as well as more complex areas such as the environment, finance, the economy, health and business;
  • and Able to participate safely, intelligently, productively and responsibly in the digital world.
