Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC)

As one of two Co-Directors of Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) Andrew Calkins helps to lead a national effort to fundamentally reimagine and transform K-12 public education in the United States. NGLC seeks to dramatically lift and transform student outcomes by helping to spur the development of next gen learning: equitable student-centered personalized competency-based experiential and tech-enabled organized around richer deeper definitions of student success. Since its inception late in 2010 NGLC’s non-profit grantmaking has invested $100 million in a range of innovations and whole-school models designed by educators and incorporating those principles.NGLC empowers educators and communities to build schools that transform the student learning experience catalyze 21st-century learning outcomes and support the societal goal of social justice. It pursues that work through grantmaking initiatives that challenge educators and communities to reimagine learning school design and assessment; by creating networks of collaborative learning that connect educators with peers who can help them; by broadly sharing our grantees’ and partners’ lessons-learned; and by offering contract services directly to interested communities districts and schools. NGLC has recently conducted research into the strategies of school districts that have successfully transformed learning school design and outcomes for students over a decade or longer of sustained effort.
