The world is experiencing a high demand for innovation, which is driving new ideas, new processes, new leaders, new inventions, new literature, and much more. In order to keep up with these developments, one needs to first examine the type of curriculum used in their school. The nature of the curriculum in schools determines whether students from educational backgrounds, like Mtakuja Secondary School, have the ability to cope with the global changes. A 21st century curriculum should be designed in a way that produces learners who can think critically, face existing problems, and suggest solutions. Mostly, learners should be equipped to developtheirskills to the maximum potential to pursue their dreams in life.

The well-designed curriculum, supported by technology, makes Mtakuja Secondary School and its community different from other schools in Tanzania. Although the material uses the Quest Forward Learning platform, the curriculum itself is written and produced by Tanzanian authors to align with the nation syllabus requirements. With a carefully crafted methodology, learners at Mtakuja are free to explore various disciplines and discover new information to grow and shape their ideas in ways never provided to students in Mtakuja before. Engaging with their mentors and peers, they are able learn the value of building relationships and working together as they explore avenues, conduct research and collaborate on group projects— developing the skills to better connect themselves to the world. Through Quest Forward Learning in Tanzania we hope that students develop essential habits  and become valuable innovators in this rapidly changing world.
