I love how you highlight the importance of students developing those 21st century skills and how you empower them to do so through project-based peer-to-peer learning. That peer-to-peer connection is a powerful one to have.

Vicki Davis March 16, 2022 - 8:30 pm

Absolutely! Peer to peer learning is so important and I loved how she talks about the peer tutor is the one who benefits most!
