Grants to this Grantee
for development of technology-enabled tools supporting deeper learning skills for college readiness
Next Generation Learning Challenges second wave, housed at EDUCAUSE, is a $9 million grant program cofunded with the Gates Foundation that seeks to dramatically improve college readiness and completion for low-income young adults by identifying barriers that are amenable to technology solutions and driving those solutions toward broad-scale adoption. Educause will administer RFP challenges for innovative technology solutions focused on the grades 7 through 9 Common Core standards with deeper learning.
for the Next Generation Learning Challenges Collaboratory project
Educause manages Next Generation Learning Challenges, a networked partnership formed by the Gates Foundation with our assistance. Its four member-driven organizations collaborate to catalyze new models in education, working with a number of innovators and districts. For example, it has engaged with the Foundation’s own Deeper Learning Student Assessment Initiative to define and create new tools and processes that can measure and assess performance in deeper learning. Educause is a leader in getting groups to collaborate and expand the impact of their individual efforts; this grant aims to continue this work so that innovative schools and networks have greater collective influence.
