21st Century Skills - The 6 Cs
New Pedagogies for Deeper Learning.
In the pursuit to operationalize our strategic plan goal to ensure that our curriculum and the pedagogies used are dynamic and student-centered, and in our desire to stay at the forefront of teaching methodologies, we have joined a global educational movement that precisely seeks to generate deeper learnings for students. In this sense, we want to develop in all our pupils the necessary competencies to be successful in a complex world, projected towards an uncertain future. These are the so-called "21st century skills" that in this NPDL (New Pedagogies for Deeper Learning) context are the six Cs which are fostered through the multiple interactions and activities that take place in the school setting.
Although these six dimensions are permanently contemplated in the implementation of our curricula, during the school year 2018 – 2019 we decided to focus on Communication as a common thread that helps us coordinate actions in a consistent and sustained manner throughout our school community. In this sense, we will consider communication, taking into account the student's voice, from a perspective of what we have called Academic Dialogue that strengthens learning as a social interaction, but also from the viewpoint of family dialogue in the home.
