Launched in October 2010, Next Gen Learning Challenges (NGLC) is a new effort to identify and scale technology-enabled approaches that dramatically improve college readiness and completion. Central to that effort is the underlying assumption that by utilizing today's tools-wikis, games, digital media, and virtual worlds-we can build learning environments that accelerate and deepen learning for our students. In this interactive workshop, we'll explore deeper learning and engagement by dissecting the underlying pedagogy, exploring IT-enabled models for the classroom, and developing a collective blueprint for supporting student engagement in the classroom.
