Critical Thinking
Digital Citizenship

Sun West School Division is committed to embracing teaching and learning in the 21st Century. Starting in the 2013-2014 school year, teachers in the Sun West have been given the opportunity to access professional development either at their own schools in small groups or as a larger group centrally in Rosetown. The goal of our 21CC work has been to create awareness of the 21st century competencies in order to prepare our learners for an ever-changing future.

During year 1 (2013-2014) our focus competencies were Collaboration and Critical Thinking. In year 2 (2014-2015) we implemented Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The 2015-2016 year was designated at a maintenance year in which we added the competency of Digital Citizenship.

Putting our Learners in the Lead
Sun West School Division is putting their students in the Lead of Their Learning. From the article " Shifting Minds" and its focus on teaching our students the crucial skills that they need to become global citizens, the team of Sun West is focusing on the 21st Century Competencies.
