Abstract

There is widespread agreement amongst educators and the general public about the importance of the traditional fundamental building blocks that underpin learning. These skills are often referred to as the 3Rs - reading, writing and arithmetic. However, for success in the 21st century, mastery of the 3Rs is not sufficient in itself.
