WHAT IS 21st CENTURY LEARNING?
One thing that will never change at ACS is our Christian worldview; however, the way we educate is changing just as rapidly as the world around us. We are living in a time of great innovation, where it is difficult even to imagine what the world will be like ten years from now. Technology is changing rapidly , and more than ever we have an abundance of information available to us at any time. How we use the things we learn has come into greater focus the last number of years. In the 21st Century, we need to educate in a way that unleashes the creativity and critical thinking of our students.
At ACS, we desire that our students have real-world experiences before they graduate. One of the tools we use to prepare our students is Project-Based Learning (PBL). PBL is a dynamic approach to teaching. Students have the opportunity to explore real-world problems and challenges. With this type of active and engaged learning, students are inspired to obtain a deeper knowledge of the subjects they’re studying.
