CREATIVITY RESPECT TEAMWORK
As we participate in a global world, what are the skills that we want our students to develop? An assessment for global competence has been created by PISA (Program for International Student Assessment) and it includes the following;
- Ability to interact respectfully, appropriately and effectively with other people
- Openness towards people from other cultures
- Respect for cultural otherness
- Global mindedness
Our personal and collective challenge at Medlow is to create a learning environment for students that reflects these values, engages them in the therapeutic powers of play and provides inquiry learning opportunities that promotes problem solving and higher order thinking.
