Students as collaborators use their native, heritage or Asian Languages to learn from and work cooperatively across cultures with global team members, sharing responsibility and making necessary compromises while working toward a common goal.
3. Critical Thinking Skills and Problem Solving
Students as inquirers frame, analyze, and synthesize information as a well as negotiate meaning across languages and cultures in order to explore problems and issues from their own and different perspectives.
4. Technology Literacy
Students as productive global citizens use appropriate technologies when interpreting messages, interacting with others, and to present information concepts and ideas.
