Success looks different now than it was in the past. The more complex the world becomes, the more creative we need to be to meet its challenges; and this is becoming increasingly clear in education. Unfortunately, most students continue to be educated in the same way as they were in the past. Past methods makes little sense to today’s students who learn and think differently. Schools must teach students to respond to rapid change and how to handle new information, than clinging to obsolete methods.
A 21st century education is about giving students the skills they need to succeed in this new world, and helping them grow confidence to practice those skills.
