21st Century Learning
Students need the core foundation of knowledge as well as skills that will prepare them for 21st Century citizenship. These skills include creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and collaboration. While these skills are not new, they are in ever-increasing demand in a world that is more digital and more globally connected. Technology has evolved into a tool for fostering these 21st century skills.
