21st Century Learning - Vancouver Talmud Torah


VTT is a leading centre for excellence in 21st century learning. Long before other schools adopted this approach, our faculty were delivering our curricula according to the core principles, also known as the 5 Cs + 1.

The integration of the general studies and Judaics programs, and the layering of learning as students progress through each grade is uniquely VTT:

    • Communication
    • Collaboration
    • Creativity
    • Critical Thinking
    • Curiosity
    • Cosmopolitanism

The model is inclusive, involving students and faculty, as well as parents in roles that look a lot different from “traditional” models:

    • From Passive Student → Active Learning
    • From Parent as Support → Parent as Participant
    • From Teacher as Lecturer → Teacher as Guide

The key areas of measuring a student’s success through 21st century learning are:

    • Numeracy and Mathematics
    • Reading Literacy
    • Creativity
    • ITC/Technological Literacy
    • Digital Literacy
