What is 21st Century Learning?

  • WCSD 21st Century Learning supports 21st Century Employability Skills and student-centered learning for all students, K-12. Through instructional practices that foster student Collaboration, Knowledge Construction, Real World Problem Solving and Innovation, Use of Technology for Learning, Self-Regulation, and Skilled Communication, WCSD will prepare career-and-college-ready graduates, who are ready to succeed in the modern world.

    Wait, isn't 21st Century Learning a technology thing? Well, yes, but it's much more than that. 21st Century Learning is about preparing our students with the learning skills they need in a rapidly changing world. Employers and colleges are clear that they want graduates who have solid content knowledge, but can also apply this knowledge in the real world. 21st Century Learning helps our students develop these competencies. 

    So, we also support student-centered technologies that help students develop 21st Century competencies.
