Planning and Designing for K-12 Next Generation Learning
Edwards, Dave
International Association for K-12 Online Learning
The changing demands of the 21st century--and the students growing up in it--are generating fundamental challenges to historical assumptions about what education looks like. The challenge today is to provide a deeper level of personalized learning to each and every student so that all can achieve mastery of the Common Core standards and other skills and dispositions. Because the field of next generation learning is still nascent, practitioner-created tools and resources are sparse-and those that do exist are not validated. This toolkit organizes the most helpful resources currently available on pathways for district, charter, and school leaders to use during the first stages of research and deliberation on how to proceed. It will facilitate a better understanding of what questions to ask and how to begin thinking through the next generation learning design. The toolkit will serve as a decision-making guide for conceptualizing, designing, and developing next generation learning in school, districts, or charter management organization. It will streamline the process for planning and engaging other stakeholders to design learning that will effectively and efficiently lead to improved outcomes for students. The graphic charts the key decisions necessary to make throughout the process and provides an outline for the toolkit.
