“Mommy Moments” and 21st Century Education

September 4, 2008 - 0 Comments

As I dropped my four-year-old Emily to her first day of class at pre-kindergarten on Monday, I couldn’t help but to think about the activities/projects that her teachers have planned throughout the next 8-9 months for the class and hope/pray that would adequately prepare her for the BIG leap…to kindergarten (a different school) this time next year! Mommy anxieties…I get too many and too often. This “mommy moment” leads me to share with you an insightful perspective from a woman who has a passion for education, Tae Yoo, Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs. She talks about education for the new century and how it has changed little since the early 1900’s. Rethinking Education in the 21st CenturyTae speaks of the Four Pillars of Education Transformation and while they may be quite ambitious upon reading, I can definitely mull over them on my trips as Emily’s personal chauffeur to/from home/pre-kindergarten and beyond.Enjoy! 🙂
