Next Gen Tools: Activate Instruction


This innovation brief from Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) focuses on Summit Public Schools' co-development of Activate Instruction--a free, open, online site for curricula that integrates assessments, in conjunction with Illuminate Education and ShowEvidence, to allow students to progress at their own pace in one, integrated space.

Next Gen Tools: Activate Instruction is the first in a series of 2-page briefs that describes tools and strategies from the NGLC network of breakthrough model grant recipients in both K-12 and higher education. The caselets are intended for practitioners within and outside of the network who wish to learn about emerging practices with an eye toward future implementation.
