U.S. Schools of the Future Part 1: Content & Curriculum - Focuses on Changing Demand Relating to OER, Assessments, Robotics -

The "Schools of the Future, Part 1: Content and Curriculum" report has been added to's offering.

Across the U.S., school districts are embracing the concept of future-ready schools, or schools that are rooted in the 21st Century Learning Framework. In such schools, teachers' and students' roles are reversed-students take a greater role in directing their own progress through a unique learning path, while teachers become guides and mentors.

This report examines the characteristics of future-ready schools, gleaned through the experiences of those who have implemented key components, and provides a look at where the U.S. is today in transforming the current education system into the schools of the future.

The report focuses on the changing curriculum needs of future-ready schools - from 21st century learning models to personalized learning and multi-age learning to the changing roles of teachers and librarians - and the changing demand relating to instructional materials, including OER, assessments, robotics, and other technologies.

Practical lessons on implementation of the aspects of future-ready schools are provided through five case studies of districts or schools in each part (for a total of 10 case studies) that are implementing facets of the school of the future.

Schools of the Future was created t be a reference resource and guide for developers, marketers and providers of curriculum development, content, technology tools and devices, assessment, professional development, furniture and educational equipment.
