Philosophy of Education

What was considered a good education 50 years ago, however, is no longer enough for success in college, career, and citizenship in the 21st century.

Implementation of 21st century skills in a variety of learning environments and learning spaces is the core content of our Philosophy of Education at both the national and the International sections of AISS. These include standards, assessment, professional development, curriculum & instruction, and learning environments.

The Four Cs of 21st century learning, also known as the Four Cs or 4 Cs, are four skills that have been identified by the United States-based Partnership for 21st Century Skills (P21) as the most important skills required for 21st century education:

  1. Critical thinking
  2. Communication
  3. Collaboration
  4. Creativity
