Highland High School will empower students to use knowledge, skills, and strategies to become productive members of society who use higher level thinking. The transition from traditional education to facilitated education is the transition from consumers of knowledge to producers of knowledge. Producers of knowledge use many different modalities as they work collaboratively with both teachers and peers to comprehend and synthesize information to answer real world questions.
As students develop their ability to use technology effectively through research, collaboration, networking, and individualized study, they will develop powerful skills that will facilitate the communication and execution of their ideas. In effect, today’s students will become tomorrow’s critical and creative problem solvers that are prepared to shape the future of our world.
