This month Getting Smart is acknowledging people and organizations making a difference with a series of back to school top 10 lists. During August we will run about 40 ‘best of’ lists, not in order, not exhaustive, just people we appreciate. Today we are recognizing 10 interesting high schools schools and 10 networks that promote deeper learning.
Deeper Learning Networks
We’re profiling schools from each of these networks and exploring what they do well. Here are the first of a handful of posts (and a paper):
Innovative High Schools
NYC iSchool: problem-based curriculum
Academy for Software Engineering, IBM sponsored coding school in NYC
Quest to Learn: game-based middle school
For more on innovative high schools see: Next Generation Learning Challenge grantee profiles and:
Bonus: there are about 100 next-gen, upper-secondary schools in Denmark with a focus on business (HHX) and STEM (HTX) that are worth visiting.
