MyWays asks the four big questions challenging public education in the United States today and distills oceans of research to bring you trustworthy answers and actionable ideas.
WHY the urgent need for fundamental change? WHAT competencies must students develop to succeed in a world of accelerating change? HOW can schools enable students to build this broader, deeper set of competencies? HOW can they measure progress, in ways that support the learning?
The centerpiece of this initiative is the MyWays Student Success Framework, a synthesis of 20 competencies for success in learning, work, and life. Use the framework, tools, and community you’ll find here to launch your school-change initiative and reimagine your learning and assessment designs. The value of MyWays lies primarily in the rich discussions, collaborative development, and transformative culture-building it can catalyze within your team, school, district, and community. We encourage you to think of MyWays as more of a helpful friend than a blueprint; more of a conversation than a report; more journey than destination. MORE ON THIS.
The kids are counting on us. Frankly, so are the adults. If we only know one thing about life in the 2030s and 2040s, it’s that it will be exceedingly different from today. There’s no more important work than preparing young people to shape those differences in positive ways.
