Preparing young people to thrive in the digital age means building on the basics and connecting students with deeper learning experiences that develop real-world skills and cultivate creativity and imagination.
So, how do we prepare kids to thrive in a world of constant change? Today’s students must learn how to learn, be curious on how different topics intersect and be confident in their inner creativity.
