Next Generation Learning Challenges: transforming education through technology
Ensuring that today's high school students graduate on time and armed with the necessary skills and expertise to flourish in higher education and their career has become a critical challenge to America's educational system. Learning is no longer a function of time, hours at a desk, or the number of books read. Learning that is experiential, challenging, and guided by feedback and adaptive change best fits today’s learners and the environments in which they live, work, and succeed. This panel discussion by Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) is part of a series to teach about NGLC and its ongoing efforts to improve college readiness through a series of virtual events.
