[Checklist] 6 Steps Toward a 21st Century Learning Environment

Career & Technology Education (CTE) | Student Engagement | Grade Level: Secondary (7-12) | student achievement

CTE Checklist5.2017.pngDespite being 18 years into the new millennium, we hear a lot about "21st Century Learning Environments" these days, as schools are struggling to adapt to meet the needs of a new kind of learner - one who is constantly immersed in technology, and thus needs engaging, hands-on activities to feel connected to the real-life, real-world.

With this in mind, we've created a 6-step checklist to help you assess building new, or enhancing your current CTE program, based on tactics our customers have implemented, as proof these techniques really work. For example... 

⇒ Are you measuring your programs against skills in the 16 Career Clusters?

The Career Academy in Lincoln, Nebraska implemented a professional development program based on common career clusters in an effort to provide area high school juniors and seniors opportunities to learn job skills in a chosen field. Using graphic design, manufacturing, and production skills, students at the Career Academy created a customized water bottle company,
successfully selling their products and even producing a commercial that was entered into a national competition.

And this is just one thing to keep in mind. We've got 5 more steps to consider, plus plenty of examples on how schools just like yours are equipping their students for the highest college and career-ready achievements.
