21st Century Skills
Weatherly Area School District (WASD) strives to provide a rich learning environment. Our goal is to give the students a solid 21st Century Learning experience. When we think of 21st Century Learning the first thing that usually comes to mind is teaching students about technology. Technology is only meant to be a tool that the students utilize to enhance their "critical thinking and problem solving, communication, collaboration, and creativity and innovation." Technology coupled with the excellent teachers at WASD provide our students with a high level of education.
"Our country and our students are operating in an economy that prizes innovation. In an effort to prepare today's children for tomorrow's world, the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, and its members like Verizon, provide tools and resources that fuse the three Rs and the four Cs (critical thinking and problem solving, communication, collaboration, and creativity and innovation). These tools and resources are reflected in P21's Framework for 21st Century Learning – a holistic view of 21st century teaching and learning, so that our students can meet the challenges of the modern age."
