As we continue to work on the basic design principles for the new GCDS High School, one idea is clear. The students of the last century were consumers of information. They were asked to memorize and regurgitate. The students of today have shifted that paradigm and have become creators of information. They build, tinker, innovate, collaborate, solve, and create—and the result is incredibly deep and "sticky" learning. We know this to be the case because we have seen it at work on Old Church Road. Take a look at this short 1-minute video, and you will see what I mean!
