Active learning is when we fully participate and engage in our learning. Far superior to passive learning (little learner involvement) active learning requires action: asking questions, critiquing, forming opinions or hands-on building.
Creative problem solving involves looking at a problem from different points of view. Problems can be solved by following a process: brainstorm solutions, create or design something, test it out, and revise based on feedback/data.
Being responsible means being dependable, keeping promises, and honoring our commitments. A person who is responsible accepts the results of the decisions they make and does not make excuses for their actions or blame others when things go wrong.
Goal setting is all about envisioning a positive future of who we are and what we hope to become and achieve. Whether it is a performance goal (compared to others) or a mastery goal (compared to ourselves), goal-setting can help us track our progress as we learn and grow.
