Big Idea – The World is Flat
While watching the video in the introduction, you were asked to consider the question, "What skills we need to be teaching our students to help best prepare them to be competitive in the flat world?"
Alan November (2006) suggests the vision should be to create a culture of teaching and learning that produces students who are:
- Critical thinkers
- Self-directed learners
- Have a capacity for global collaboration
In effect, the goal is to create a culture where students are:
- Fearless learners who have the confidence to learn anywhere, anytime with anybody.
- Fearless communicators who have the skills to communicate anytime with anybody.
