To prepare students to succeed in the global economy, curriculum standards must include eLearning environments with rich digital media and powerful tools. They must also work hand-in-hand with a balanced assessment approach that measures students’ knowledge and skills, while tracking individual progress.
Attributes of a 21st century learning environment
See how Intel collaborates with government and industry leaders to improve curriculum and assessment standards in education systems around the world:
