The ability to learn more

“The ability to learn new things is more important in a world where you have to process new information at lightning speed. Students need to be able to think creatively, critically, and collaboratively; to master the “basics” and excel in reading, math, science, and information literacy, and respond to opportunities and challenges with speed, agility, and innovation. Students need to expand their knowledge beyond the doors of their local community to become responsible and contributing global citizens in the increasingly complex world economy. “
