21st Century Learning

A chalkboard, a desk, the homework, the books, the day begins and ends when the bells ring. For centuries now this has defined what all of us think about school. We have come to believe that this is the one way students will learn and with that belief we have taught all of our students in pretty much the exact same way. But the world has changed and what it means to be ready and succeed in the future has also changed that means our model of learning must change.

Gone are the days when some students excel & others just get by. We at Oakdale make sure all kids excel at high levels and to make this happen we engage our students like never before. We Incorporate student skills and interest into the learning process, making the experience more personalized involving the student in his/her own future.

Schools fail your kids

Most of the schools today fall far short when evaluated against the goals of student-centered learning. The school buildings are not designed to facilitate modern methods of teaching and learning. In fact, these schools prevent the delivery of a true 21st century education.

We at Oakdale show you how a well designed school building can be a catalyst for pedagogical change.

The multiple ways of LEARNING

Schools promise to follow 21st century education practices but in fact they are following 19th century education. Most of the schools, if not all, follow primarily one learning modality which is ‘Teacher Lecture’.

  • Independent Study
  • Peer to peer learning
  • Team collaboration
  • Project-based learning
