Did you face any barriers in your education? How did you overcome them?
At Early Colleges, we help students set goals, meet high expectations and understand they have the power to change the trajectory of their lives by just deciding to embrace the early college opportunity. Early College High School students can persist and thrive from intrinsic motivation or, more often than not, with the help of caring adults who expect success.

"Incumbent education organizations would do well to start by working to enable new personalized learning cultures. Those learning cultures would cultivate inquiry, creativity, and play."

In a fixed mindset, a student believes their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. Looking around schools today, fixed mindsets are all too common.

Many of the socio-cultural changes that are disrupting education are also affecting religious and spiritual practice. In applying our forecasts from “A Glimpse into the Future of Learning” and Recombinant Education: Regenerating the Learning Ecosystem to that domain, we found that the spiritual ecosystem is expanding, just as the learning ecosystem is expanding.

Jones Valley Teaching Farm and the Birmingham City Schools in the Woodlawn Innovation Network have, over the past 18 months, developed just such a relationship. What began as a simple community garden is now a series of scaffolded, standards-driven learning experiences jointly developed and delivered by teachers and Jones Valley staff. The partnership touches every school in a feeder pattern.

With future trends pointing toward profound shifts in the structures of both education and work, credentials could evolve considerably over the next ten years.

Human choice plays an important role in shaping the future of education. For example, we can, as a society, make a choice about the extent to which high standards for all learners intersect with the customization of learning playlists.

We need to create learning environments and cultures where students are curious and maintain a passion to keep moving and question. We can do this through inquiry-based learning and design challenges.

Currently, too many students are falling through the cracks of our education system. It’s time for a change. It’s time for a New Normal. It’s time to make Early College High School an option for more students.

Creating sustainable improvement in student readiness for college and careers.
Introduction
A learning revolution.  That’s what KnowledgeWorks is bringing to schools all across the country. In our schools, students learn in ways that make sense to them as they prepare to thrive in a dynamic future. Suddenly, education becomes more relevant. And the possibilities for our students are endless. This learning revolution extends into communities and states, too – from parents to business leaders to governors – creating widespread, lasting change.
