DRIVING SOCIAL INNOVATION IN QUALITY EDUCATION
Responding to the challenges of the 21st century learning by re-inventing education
God wills that every person learn and continue searching what is best for each one and for the society as a whole. God gives us various opportunities to discover and pursue what will essentially benefit and prove each human being’s life.
REALITY: How Things Stand
Globalization and the rise of new technologies during the 21st century have revolutionized our learning methods, and therefore our teaching system must undergo a thorough revision. Educational systems cannot only focus on content, since it expires quickly. We need to educate students in digital skills since they will be key to correctly develop career opportunities in the world that awaits them once they leave the school. It is estimated that by 2030, 90% of jobs will require that the person who perform them have digital skills.
Inspirations from our Catholic & Lasallian Tradition
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. (Luke 4:14-30)
God is so good that He not only bring us into existence but also desires that all of us come to the knowledge of truth. This truth is God Himself,… God desires all of us to be taught this knowledge. (Meditations 193)
The Lasallian school is a response to God’s invitation for all to have life; and to concrete social realities. In the Lasallian school, learners are given both religious formation and practical training. It is a place where persons learn their faith and what is needed for their integration into society as adults. The comprehensive program of education seeks to promote the excellence of the whole person. Through the school, God’s spirit is made alive in and his loving plan is made concrete for a particular society and its poor and marginalized.
