Just a Few of Our Favorite Things
Good question! Basically, educators are constantly striving to find what is best for all students. The world is constantly changing, jobs that we are preparing students for now likely haven't even been invented yet. How do we prepare students for this ever-changing world? Is the classroom setting that was set up in the 1800's appropriate for students in this new technology world? What is the best way to prepare students to be successful?? By preparing students to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, collaborators, innovators in this ever changing technology driven world, we can send them out in the world best prepared to flourish and thrive.
