Next State of Learning

We live at a moment in history when the world is dramatically changing.

Unlike past generations, today’s young people face a future that is highly fluid and unknown -- when the time between asking a question and finding the answer is almost instantaneous; and when the mark of a successful school is less about the knowledge you put into your students, and more about the wisdom you are able to pull out.

Given this, in what ways do the structures and aims of education need to shift? Which of our previous practices and programs must we hold onto -- to anchor us in the work ahead? And which habits and hallowed traditions will we need to let go of — so that something new and improved can have the space, naturally and with “urgent patience,” to come into being?

Next State of Learning shares the stories of how some innovative states have begun to answer that question -- at scale.
