What if a class consisted of words that led to information that whirled into blended realms of creativity set up just for students, created by students?

Four Inventive Games That Show Us the Future of Learning By Tanner Higgin, Graphite I think of contemporary art as a kind of futurism. Artists tinker away in their studios like engineers, making challenging (often weird) things that reframe what’s possible. In the process, they pioneer new ideas and technologies that sometimes get realized on a mass scale years later. Look no further than Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” which borrowed heavily from James Turrell’s work, or Kit Galloway and Sherrie Rabinowitz’s “Hole in Space,” which staged a New York to Los Angeles Skype-like video chat in 1980.

At its most basic level, a startup is a learning machine—one that helps its founders understand and serve the real world in a manner that enables itself to continuously gather information and grow. If it doesn’t learn and adjust, a startup ends. Successful students, like startups, are those who are resilient, constantly absorbing new information and challenging their assumptions. We’re not surprised, then, to see a proliferation of startup and entrepreneurial programs springing up in and around K-12 schools. What’s more, an entrepreneurial culture, carefully scaffolded, can help schools transform and unlock learning in ways that more traditional coursework cannot.

Take a look at this video, “What is Blended Learning?” UX to LX: The Rise of Learner Experience Design The term “user experience” or “UX” wasn’t always an overused Silicon Valley buzzword. Coined in the mid ‘90s by Don Norman, while he was vice president of advanced technology at Apple, it refers to an abstract way to describe the relationship between a product and a human. Back then, Norman argued that technology must evolve to put user needs first—the opposite of how things were done at the time.

The standards set rigorous goals for our students to meet, and our curriculum ensures that the students can achieve them. The goal of a standards-based learning environment is for the curriculum, instruction, assessment, and reporting all to align to make the learning journey transparent to all.
