WHY CHANGE?

We have already a great product and an educational experience that has prepared generations of Catholic young men and women to succeed and lead our Peoria community. Why then is change at this time so important? The information revolution has changed the way the world works. No longer is information scarce. Information is now ubiquitous and a simple click away. This shift is beginning to radically redefine learning. No longer is the teacher the giver of knowledge, but rather the role of the teacher needs to be elevated to guide students through recognizing and connecting meaning. Instructional strategies need to reflect this change.

The videos below help to explain this radical shift from an industrial model of information scarcity and the need for control, to the world in which we now live. Our school must change to prepare children for the world "they" will inherit, not the world in which we grew up.
