The world is changing and parents want their kids equipped to succeed. So do teachers. So does the provincial government.
We have to change because technology and innovation are reshaping society – and the future. That's why we are refining our education system, designed in the last century, so students can succeed in the 21st Century.
Parents expect their kids to learn the basics – reading, writing and arithmetic. Well imagine them doing this through real-world situations.
The key to making this happen is our new curriculum – the plan that maps out what teachers teach and what students are expected to learn.
Students will get hands-on experience in collaboration, critical thinking and communications – skills they'll need to succeed in college, university, and the workforce.
Personalized learning is at the heart of the new curriculum and makes it easy or kids to engage, connect and succeed.
