Why Schools Need to Change

Today’s learners face an uncertain present and a rapidly changing future that demands far different skills and knowledge than we needed in the 20th century.

Designing for Equity

Next gen learning serves equity when it takes a cultural lens, values whole person development, and equips students and educators to address injustice.

New Designs for School

Educators are combining the best of what we know about purposeful, authentic learning with bold ideas about student success to completely reimagine schools.

Building Community

When educators design and create new schools, and live next gen learning themselves, they take the lead in growing next gen learning across the nation.

Reimagining Assessment

Educators are rethinking the purposes, forms, and very nature of assessment, designing assessment for learning as an integral part of the learning process.

Professional Learning

If educators are to enable powerful, authentic learning among their students, they need to live that kind of learning and professional culture themselves.

Technology Tools

Educators often make use of ed tech as they make the shifts in instruction, teacher roles, and learning experiences that next gen learning requires.

Enabling Change

Next gen learning happens when everyone—kids and adults alike—take charge of their own learning and has the opportunity to do their best possible work.
