We believe that our School Education System has to transform to meet the needs of the 21st Century.
The world that we live in today is starkly different from that of the 20th century. Content is ubiquitous and free, routine and advanced tasks are being automated, top-down structures are being replaced by flat structures of project-based teams and technological breakthroughs are changing every aspect of our life.
Our education has to come up to speed with these realities. Mastery of the “3 R’s” (reading, writing and arithmetic) is no longer enough, nor is the superficial recollection of facts. What is needed is deeper learning of content through its application in solving real-life issues. Also, content knowledge needs to be complemented with purposeful development of critical skills (problem solving, creativity, communication, collaboration) and universal human values (empathy, positivity, equanimity, ethic of excellence).
Strategum has developed a School model around the 21st Century Skills that involve Project Based Learning, Deeper Learning and Teaching For Understanding to develop Kidpreneur™ - students with entrepreneurial mindset.
