- Critical thinking
We have entered the fourth industrial revolution. By introducing coding into our curriculum, and finding the opportunities to include the 4 C’s, both as a stand-alone subject as well as integrated into everyday lessons, we are cultivating CREATORS as opposed to CONSUMERS. We are putting the power into the hands of the learners.
As sited by Applied Educational Sciences, “The four C’s of 21st Century skills let students create a whole that’s greater than the sum of its parts. Critical thinking teaches students to question claims and seeks the truth. Creativity teaches students to think in a way that’s unique to them. Collaboration teaches students that groups can create something bigger and better than you can on your own. Communication teaches students how to efficiently convey ideas. Combined, the four C’s empower students to become one-person think tanks. Then, when those students get together, they can achieve almost anything!”
As an inclusive teaching and whole-brain learning school, we aim to acknowledge these 4 C’s as well as our ever-changing school and work environment to provide optimal learning opportunities for our learners to explore the abovementioned concepts.
Empowering Shelanti learners for the future by optimizing their creativity and problem-solving skills through computational thinking. The creation of a platform on which collaboration and innovation can be developed with confidence and passion, to the benefit of the wider community.
