Page history last edited by Alice Yucht 14 years, 7 months ago


In the Industrial Age, students learned Reading, wRiting, and aRithmetic.

Those composition and ciphering skills were considered educational basics necessary for every citizen.

Now, however, our students need to master more complex skills for coping with the ever-increasing flow of information in all kinds of new formats:

  • Reasoning = cognitive skills
  • Reconnoitering = performance skills
  • Responsibility = ethical choices


in order to become effective and self-reliant information consumers and producers.
