  • Learning takes an integrated and interdisciplinary approach, which occurs through experimenting with ideas and strategies,

  • Learning requires hard work to build a strong foundation for the knowledge base and skill sets that transcend cultures, societies, and time, which become the essential tools for learners to adapt, innovate, and create,

  • Learning is personalized, allowing for maximizing individual potential and minimizing barriers influenced by learners’ interests, abilities, backgrounds, and contexts,

  • Learning takes place within and outside U.S. borders and with speakers of different linguistic and cultural backgrounds,

  • Learning comes from real life and participatory experiences such as project-based, service-learning, exchange programs and eventually study abroad, in addition to instructions and engagement in the classroom,

  • Learning with technological and digital literacy and tools helps expand their worlds into virtual space and environment,

  • Learning is demonstrated through real-world performances and authentic assessment tasks,
