|Schools of the Future: Content, Curriculum and the Physical Space|
|Published: May 9, 2018||Content info:||
Across the U.S., school districts are embracing the concept of future-ready schools, or schools that are rooted in the 21st Century Learning Framework. In such schools, teachers' and students' roles are reversed-students take a greater role in directing their own progress through a unique learning path, while teachers become guides and mentors. This report, Schools of the Future, examines the characteristics of future-ready schools, gleaned through the experiences of those who have implemented key components, and provides a look at where the U.S. is today in transforming the current education system into the schools of the future.
Schools of the Future, Part 1: Curriculum and Content focuses on the changing curriculum needs of future-ready schools-from 21st century learning models to personalized learning and multi-age learning to the changing roles of teachers and librarians-and the changing demand relating to instructional materials, including OER, assessments, robotics, and other technologies.
Schools of the Future, Part 2: The Physical Space focuses on the new physical spaces for learning-the changing school environment, both for new construction and the redesign of existing space-that are being implemented to facilitate the future-ready learning experience. These new spaces demand flexibility for both students and teachers, but future ready does not necessarily mean a huge construction project.
Practical lessons on implementation of the aspects of future-ready schools are provided through five case studies of districts or schools in each part (for a total of 10 case studies) that are implementing facets of the school of the future.
Schools of the Future was created to be a reference resource and guide for developers, marketers and providers of curriculum development, content, technology tools and devices, assessment, professional development, furniture and educational equipment.
