Learn how to bring the MyWays Toolkit to life in your classroom and school.

The best way to envision something is to see it. And the best resources for innovative practices are fellow educators. Explore how educators are putting MyWays to work and learn with them as they take on the trickiest challenges of educating students for Habits of Success, Creative Know How, Content Knowledge, and Wayfinding Abilities. 

You can also find more perspectives, tools, and resources generated by NGLC’s national community of next generation learning schools at the NGLC website. And NGLC Services offer the opportunity to engage directly with experienced educators through contract engagements and professional learning events.

Share your Ideas. Go Deep. Take MyWays Further.

Educators in the MyWays Community of Practice, launched in September 2016, are learning together as they go deep into the ideas, strategies, and tools provided by MyWays and as they use the success framework in their schools. The goal of this small group is to help NGLC make MyWays a genuinely accessible tool for practitioners. Currently, nine organizations are involved in monthly virtual meetups to share, collaborate, and problem solve.


In this five-minute video, Laura Shubilla of MyWays Community of Practice member Building 21, asks, “What if?” and shares the ways in which MyWays serves as a foundation for the Building 21 learning model. (From a September 18, 2018 gathering of ed leaders in Philadelphia hosted by the Barra Foundation.)

Your Guide to Redefining Student Success.

The MyWays Student Success Framework draws on existing frameworks of student success as well as effective practice in next generation learning and innovation. It synthesizes research from education and learning; human development and social-emotional learning; and work and workforce development.

The EdSurge Research Guide, Bridging the Chasm: Defining Success Beyond Traditional Academics, examines how five schools are redefining student success using MyWays. NGLC supported the project.


How Next Generation Schools Define Success

This guide, developed with funding from Overdeck Family Foundation, helps busy educators adopting next generation learning to build on the experiences of those already doing it. Find out how educators in the NGLC network of schools answered these questions in a recent survey:

  • What do students learn?

  • How do students learn?

  • How is learning measured?

  • How do schools know if they are succeeding?

  • How do schools communicate about next generation learning and their successes?
