It has been proven that in order for students to thrive in today’s world they need to be taught  how to communicate, collaborate, think critically, and be creative.  These skills can be seen across the school.  In second grade we have a teacher who has designed her classroom to incorporate 21st Century Learning.  What we know is that there are a variety of learners, and students learn differently than one another. Providing students with these opportunities will open up the opportunity for them to learn more and be successful later in life. The classroom design allows for room to move around, standing desks, rocking chairs and much more.  The overall atmosphere changes and it allows students the opportunity to grow as learners.  In addition teachers are changing the way they are teaching and incorporating more opportunities for 21st century learning throughout their day.
