With technology becoming more pervasive in all aspects of daily life, it is important to prepare our students in a classroom environment that will give them the inspiration, knowledge, and skills for the future. The classroom will be an environment that is conducive to students becoming aware of technology and how it works, and developing several life skills like creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. The role of the instructors will be to mentor and guide the students through the learning process. Students will also cultivate interdisciplinary knowledge, integrating science, technology, art, engineering, and mathematics.
Students should be prepared to review the previous lesson material in class prior to starting the lesson content assigned to that day. They should be prepared for discussions surrounding the lesson topic before attending the class. They are encouraged to research and explore outside of the classroom into related interests and topics covered in class. They should be self-motivated and respectful, and interested in improving their critical thinking, communication, creativity, problem solving, and cooperative skills.
