​Framework: Next Generation Learning Challenges Toolkit

Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) supports the educators who are reimagining public education. The non-profit collaborative helps educators apply research about learning and school design, and works with them to create environments in which 21st century learning can flourish. NGLC is addressing public education’s most urgent challenges, including issues relating to equity, professional learning, communication among educators, environment and design, and how to teach for a rapidly changing technical world. It provides a robust source of information on what’s actually working in the classroom, in the form of toolkits, articles and deep-dive research.

NGLC’s resources include blogs and information about recent research as structured advice on implementing learning plans that goes beyond sharing academic content. The core of this help is theMyWays Success Framework, which NGLC describes as a journey, not a destination. MyWays fosters rich discussions and collaborative development. It has the strong potential to transform the culture of schools, districts and communities, helping them work together more closely.

The framework aims to help students develop a broader and deeper set of skills, knowledge, and habits of success than they would at traditional K–12 schools. Its toolkit includes methods for defining success, learning and assessment. It starts with fine-tuning a community’s definition of success. Explore how MyWays works in practice for schools and educators, and read the "Broader & Deeper Competencies for Student Success" reports to appreciate the thinking behind and science of this framework.
