About Next-Gen Learning
Next Generation Classrooms...education, innovation and technology. There's a new generation of students with different experiences and expectations from those in the past. This new generation is very comfortable and savvy with technology. These students also want to do things their own way, have their own interests nurtured, be challenged to think critically, pointed in the right direction for independent learning and shown that they can make a difference. Today's students present a special challenge to the purpose, methods and structures of the current educational system.
Thanks to our partnership with the Foundation for Saline Area Schools...we will be able to outfit 5-7 Next Generation Classrooms during the 2013-14 school year. We're confident that the innovative teachers participating in this Strategic Grant will create new, scalable learning models/learning spaces at the elementary, middle school and high school levels that will carry on for years to come.
Next-Gen Classroom Overview
Saline Area Schools, in partnership with the Foundation for Saline Area Schools (FSAS), is ready to answer the call to transform the teaching & learning environment with the creation of Next Generation Classrooms. These cutting-edge classrooms are about creating the best way for teachers to facilitate engaging, yet challenging, learning experiences to students of all abilities by redesigning the learning space, teaching pedagogy and investment/use of technology in the classroom.
