The MyWays project is an initiative of Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) that has been incubating since 2014.
It began as a way to help the NGLC K-12 Breakthrough Model grantees and other forward-leaning educators examine the depth and clarity of their next generation learning design by connecting learning and assessment to broader, deeper competencies.
MyWays balances research and practice. Not only does it incorporate current research in education, youth development, and other fields, it also reflects the perspectives, input, and lessons learned by the innovative educators in the NGLC network who have been engaged in school redesign since 2011. A group of educators has formed a community of practice to learn together as they bring MyWays to their school communities.
The project is supported through a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, with additional support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Barr Foundation, and the Oak Foundation.
About the Team
Next Generation Learning Challenges, a project of Tides Center, is a community of forward-leaning educators who are working in their communities and together as a network on the most urgent challenges in public education today. A national non-profit initiative, NGLC was founded in 2010 with the understanding that, while we all have a role to play, it is the educators who should lead the transformation to next gen learning, because they are closest to the students and the learning. NGLC’s role is to enable those educators with the vision to transform their schools and the passion and courage to pursue it.
