As a 21st century education support system to DepED's K12 Curriculum and STEM Track, the 21st Century Learning Environment will serve as a venue that will create learning practices, human support and physical environment to facilitate the development of the 21st century skills of both teachers and learners in these four common cores: Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity.
A classroom setup is equipped with facility designed for mobility and connectivity to promote collaborative teaching and learning with education and information and communication technologies to support student-centered active learning. In the 21st century classroom, teachers are facilitators of student learning and creators of productive learning environments, in which students can develop the skills they need at present and the future. Teachers alongside students will also be equipped with necessary skills to meet the challenges of a more engaging and effective modern teaching.

- Enable students to learn in relevant, real world 21st century context through project-based or other applied work that will develop the four common core of 21st Century Skills: collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity;
