"The 20 breakthrough school models recognized by the Gates Foundation funded Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) took on the turnaround challenge, leveraged higher education partnerships, and improved the performance and sustainability of school networks (as outlined in part one of this three-part series). They also illustrate how blended learning supports and extends experiential learning (part two).
"This final blog illustrates ways in which NGLC blogs promote system redesign. Most of the profiled models (many referenced below) illustrate innovative staffing strategies that extend the reach of great teachers, pilot new platforms, and model new resource allocation patterns."
