Reading, writing, arithmetic… Isn’t it time for a modern shift—one that truly meets the needs of today’s tech-savvy learners? That’s the idea behind the current shift toward teaching 21st-century skills. A new book from the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD), The i5 Approach, provides a systematic approach to modernizing existing lessons and advancing overall curriculum planning for modern students.
Inquiry skills are the foundation of the i5 approach, and the ultimate goal is to guide students toward applying 21st-century skills and their use of technology to their academic learning, the way they do in their everyday lives. It’s through the processes of inquiry that students can make connections between technology and their learning.
