GS-21 was formed in 2006 to provide members with an opportunity to meet about six times a year to discuss issues associated with global education and 21st Century Skills. The group selects and reads books that feature current thinking on innovative practices and international trends. The group also reads articles on important topics of local concern. The discussions are stimulating and reflect a diversity of perspectives. The group often enjoys contributions from guest speakers who are national and international experts. Members of the group travel to international destinations frequently and visit schools with high academic achievement and best teaching practices. To date the educational delegations have included Helsinki (3 times), Stockholm, Berlin, London, Havana, and Warsaw/Krakow.
The group is open to all M.A.S.S members and there is no registration fee.
