An overview of the project was presented by the Manager <click here for presentation> explaining how the civil and political rights of children in the ESA regional are integrated into, and have the potential to be advanced, through 21st century learning. However, for learners to acquire the competencies to succeed in the 21st century will require re-appraising our approach to education. In particular, 21st century approach has learner agency at its core, where learners are provided with the opportunity to participate meaningfully and make decisions that affect their learning.
