  • Why? The need to teach our students Twenty-First Century Skills

    • They don't need 21st century skills in the future. We need them NOW! We're already 11 years into the 21st century.

    • Students need to be creating and innovating. How much of what you learned in elementary & high school do you use now? How much that you learned outside of school? It's more important to teach our students to find and construct their own knowledge than to simply fill their heads.
    • Show the world what you are learning in your classroom. Show your students that what you are learning is important.
    • Allows parents/community to see what we are doing in school
