What is 21st Century Learning?
One of the strategies in Aspire 2022 addresses 21st century learning. So ... what is 21st century learning?
21st century learning is student centered. Students must develop strong critical thinking and interpersonal communication skills in order to be successful in an increasingly fluid, interconnected, and complex world. The learner will 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. Students demonstrate digital literacy as well as civic responsibility. Virtual tools and open-source software create borderless learning territories for students of all ages, anytime and anywhere. Learning will be “learner driven” and will access information via phones and computers on the internet and chatting with friends on social networking sites. Similarly, teachers will monitor and issue assignments via virtual classrooms.
