What a Summer Prototype Taught Us About Measuring Quality in an Unbundled Education System

Edsurge

In the summer of 2016, a community of educators, research design partners, and over 150 teens and young adults in Colorado engaged in a bold experiment to rethink how quality and impact might be measured in a modernized system of learning. In this relatively small, short-cycle prototype, the lessons we learned were significant. Why focus outside of formal learning time for our design work? Framework for the Future of Learning. How Students Apply.

Framework: Ed Elements Provides Model, Plan, Hand-holding

Edsurge

Separate from its Playbook that helps define a vision, Education Elements , a consulting firm, helps schools and districts design next-generation teaching and learning models. It recognizes that districts have different characteristics that need to be addressed in program designs; rural is different than small is different than urban, for instance. Download and examine Ed Elements’ three models for elementary schools and its three models for secondary schools.

The next-gen high school to watch

The Christensen Institute

Last month, the Virtual Learning Academy Charter School (VLACS) in New Hampshire launched a new set of pathways for students. These allow students to move through learning at a more flexible pace, on an as-needed basis. How do you square that with your business model?

New, MIT-based program proposes transforming physicists, engineers into teachers

The Hechinger Report

The “Great Dome” on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which is hosting an experimental program to recruit physicists, engineers, chemists, linguists, biologists, neuroscientists and other experts and train them to be primary and secondary school teachers.

Transforming Physicists, Engineers into Teachers at New MIT Program

MindShift

Doyung Lee is a living rebuke to the old maxim that those who can, do, and those who can’t, teach. Lee, who is 24, has a bachelor’s degree in engineering that led him to become a programmer, a profession with high pay and good prospects. So we can concentrate on how to teach.”.
