What is Next Generation Learning? A personalized system of education that prepares each child for life, work and citizenship in the 21 st century. Critical attributes: 1. Personalized learning 2. Authentic student voice & agency 3. World-class knowledge and skills 4. Performance-based learning 5. Anytime, everywhere opportunities 6. Comprehensive systems of learning supports

“Personalized High Schools engage students by allowing them to plan and develop their own pathways through school based on their talents, interests, and aspirations.” Support for achieving this is provided through workshops designed to: Guiding personalized learning through advisory programs Developing a personal learning process for each student Implementing regular student led conferences Changing the culture of the school so that students are trusted and supported to lead their own learning
“Rather than grades and test scores, the work itself – portfolios, exhibitions and student-led conferences – shows what the students have learned.” Support for implementing performance assessments include: Developing an inquiry based approach to instruction Developing and scoring rubrics for portfolios, exhibitions Changing the culture of the school so that students are trusted and supported to carry out long term projects with a demanding assessment at its conclusion.
Authentic student voice is the deep engagement of students in directing and owning their individual learning and shaping the nature of the education experience among their peers.
Four key realms in which students can (and do!) make academic decisions are: what they learn how they learn how well they learn why they learn.
World Class Knowledge and Skills World-class Knowledge and Skills require achievement goals to sufficiently encompass the content knowledge and skills required for success in a globally oriented world.
World-class Knowledge and Skills require achievement goals… ……. Determine a continuum of competencies through which students demonstrate mastery. ……. Mastery requires that a student apply content and skills in performance based scenarios. ……. Grades must represent the mastery level of students. ……. Learning time is determined by mastery and not grade level.
….. achievement goals to sufficiently encompass the content knowledge and skills ….. Achievement goals (competencies) should be designed on essential knowledge and skills within and across discipline areas ….. Common Core Standards in Language Arts and Math creates portability and equity of learning opportunities district to district ….. Essential Skills should be identified in all disciplines in order to prioritize learning and focus curriculum

They are a design model for curriculum, high quality assessment and authentic learning.
Anytime Everywhere Learning Extended Learning Opportunities in NH ELO + NxtGL = MASTERY Students become more engaged, take greater ownership of learning, cultivate habits of mind, increase inquiry and solution-building, decrease desire to drop out

~adapted from the Ohio Department of Education report: new emphasis on learning What if...we designed high school around students’ needs? Flexible schedules were offered to acknowledge brain research that says that teenage brains are wired for late nights and late mornings? Students could demonstrate their mastery of competencies and move forward instead of sitting in class bored? Students could earn credit simultaneously in more than one content area through real world projects and problems that they select based on their interests? Students could earn credit for learning experiences that included postsecondary connections and postsecondary mentors, internships, educational travel, on-line learning and community service? Learning experiences nurtured students’ skills in understanding their own strengths, their local and global communities, and their goals and aspirations? Anytime, Everywhere Learning allows us to do that.
Implementation Implementation science is a framework that includes processes, tools, and activities that are systematically applied to the change process to effectively put into place a practice, program, or initiative. Research shows that effective implementation occurs in a framework that includes 7 components. The practices or initiatives being implemented are described in sufficient detail so that they can be effectively taught, evaluated, supported, and sustained. (Adapted from: Fixsen, D. L., Naoom, S. F., Blase, K. A., Friedman, R. M. & Wallace, F., 2005)
