Designing Education for Today

Personalized

Almost nothing in our society today is one-size-fits-all. Learning shouldn't be, either. Education doesn't have to be the same for everybody.

Modernized

Our standards of achievement should be high, and they should anticipate the real demands and opportunities awaiting our children.

Diversified

Learning occurs in many places, both within and beyond the classroom. Everyone should have access to a variety of rich learning experiences.

System Components

Almost everything needed to build a new system already exists. But we need to rethink how these resources are organized so learners can identify and access what they need. These system components have emerged from our design thinking process. They will continue to evolve over time, and new ones will emerge.

“I’ll be watching how new approaches beyond the traditional system, like RESCHOOL Colorado, can offer lessons around the governance implications of public-private out-of-school learning models. These new approaches may just offer the chance to truly reinvent governance and accountability from the ground up.”
