Preparing Students to Succeed in a Digital World

One of Mesquite ISD’s goals is to infuse 21st century skills throughout the district, integrating technology as a tool for problem-solving and creativity. This summer, our principals had the privilege of working with Alan November, an internationally recognized expert in the area of preparing students to succeed in a digital world. With his guidance, we are incorporating key strategies into our classrooms so that students are able learn and develop critical skills using the most current technology.

In your opinion, what knowledge, skills and values will our community’s graduates need to function effectively in the interconnected world of the 21st century?
