Making Connections

How is 21st century teaching and learning supporting Ontario learners K-12?

Much of the knowledge and skills students will need to live, work, and learn in the 21st century is contained in existing curriculum and other supporting policy documents and strategies. As documents are created or refreshed, they will align the pedagogy and/or supporting conditions for system change that will be enhanced by new and innovative applications of technology and informed by emerging research about 21st century skills and competencies.
