Changes in Education
In order to be prepared to achieve their highest potential after graduation, students must master content while producing, synthesizing, and evaluating information from a wide variety of subjects and sources with an understanding of and respect for diverse cultures. These outcomes move beyond simply understanding reading, writing, and arithmetic to a deeper level of learning that encompasses critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, digital literacy, and problem-solving skills. These are all skills that schools need to teach to help students thrive in today's world.
ISD 318 recognizes that no longer does learning have to be one-size-fits-all or confined to the classroom. The opportunities afforded by technology and new teaching techniques should be used to re-imagine 21st Century Learning, focusing on preparing students to be learners for life in a global classroom.
