Every good parent and educator has asked the questions
“How do we prepare our children for a successful future ?" “What is relevant and meaningful education?" “How is technology shaping the landscape of their lives ?"
No one has all the answers but we do have intelligent theories.
Here’s what we know for sure :
We know that children are naturally curious and it’s our job to keep them inspired to learn –not stressed to memorize data
We know that technology plays a huge role in the lives of our students now and more so in future.
We know that it’s important to ”learn to think” and “think to learn”
We realize that providing facts and theories is not as powerful as providing children with tools on how to use them
We know a “hands-on-approach” to learning is an awesome way to build skills
We believe that we can’t all be measured by IQ because there are too many kinds of intelligences –and yes-- that includes sports.
We know that being educated is second best to possessing good character
We know that not all failures sets us back, some propel us forward
We know that talent without discipline will never be enough
Yes, we believe in a lot of things but most of all we believe in harnessing the genius in every child. If we do nothing, we do a disservice to our children and parents who entrust us to provide meaningful and relevant education. The quest for 21st century learning begins today.
