The 4 Cs & Curiosity

Tools to Support the Incorporation of the 4 Cs and Curiosity in Your Teaching and Student Learning


Provide your students with opportunities to learn together, to exercise flexibility when working toward a shared goal, and to assume shared responsibility to collaborative work.


Teach students how to verbally articulate their thoughts in a wide variety of contexts, while strategically utilizing multimedia to reinforce their ideas.


Inspire your students to tap into their creative side as they work independently and collaboratively to create new ideas and to view failure as an opportunity to learn and grow.


Motivate students to think critically, reason effectively, interpret information, synthesize evidence, and solve problems in innovate ways.


Curiosity is a powerful motivator for learning. Curious students ask questions and actively search for answers. Curiosity is an essential skill for all lifelong learners.
