The Kentucky P20 Innovation Lab is built upon the Council of Chief State School Officers’ design principles that characterize new systems of learning. Kentucky is among six states selected to lead the nation in developing transformative educational practices as part of the Council of Chief State School Officers’ Partnership for Next Generation Learning. While housed and led by the University of Kentucky in its College of Education, the effort involves partners from across Kentucky.
Next Generation Learning Design Principles:
- Personalizing learning, which calls for a data-driven framework to set goals, assess progress, and ensure students receive the academic and developmental supports they need;
- Comprehensive systems of learning supports, which address social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development along a continuum of services to ensure the success of all students;
- World-class knowledge and skills, which require achievement goals to sufficiently encompass the content knowledge and skills required for success in a globally-oriented world;
- Performance-based learning, which puts students at the center of the learning process by enabling the demonstration of mastery based on high, clear, and commonly-shared expectations;
- Anytime, everywhere opportunities, which provide constructive learning experiences in all aspects of a child’s life, through both the geographic and the Internet-connected community; and
- Authentic student voice, which is the deep engagement of students in directing and owning their individual learning and shaping the nature of the education experience among their peers.
