A new charter school, KIPP SF College Prep is the first KIPP high school in the nation to adopt blended learning. Aiming to serve as a model for financially sustainable, personalized learning for students of color and students from low-income families, the school prioritizes student-centered, self-paced learning and the teacher role shifts to a coach that guides students through a variety of learning experiences.
The two-page grantee profiles from Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) provide factual information about the secondary school and postsecondary degree program designs awarded grants under NGLC's third and fourth waves of funding, which focused on two areas, "Breakthrough Models for College Readiness" and "Breakthrough Models for College Completion." The profiles describe what makes each model "breakthrough" and express both visually and through at-a-glance details the academic and organizational models, student demographics, hardware and software choices, and contact info. These profiles serve to illustrate the innovations of these new blended and online models, with practical details of interest to those starting a new school or degree program.
NGLC accelerates educational innovation through applied technology to dramatically improve college readiness and completion in the United States. To learn more about NGLC and the grantees it supports, visit nextgenlearning.org.
