21st CENTURY SKILLS

Classroom, Inc. gives students multiple opportunities to develop 21st century workplace skills, such as collaboration, problem-solving, using data for decision-making, digital-age literacy, and effective use of real-world tools. We do this in the context of expanding students’ knowledge about their career options while at the same time supporting them in academic skills acquisition. These results from a student survey tell the story.
