21st Century Learning Summer Institute

Next Generation Learing
Preparing Students for Life,
Meaningful Work, and Citizenship

Applications are being accepted for Sonoma County school teams to participate in a unique professional development format that involves team development, learning together, and jointly creating and implementing a 21st Century Learning “action project” at your school. The week will be organized in “research and development” design, with the expectation of strong team initiative, innovation, and self-direction. Participating teams will have the opportunity to:

  • Investigate the skills students need to successfully prepare for college and career in the 21st century
  • Hear top keynote speakers in the field of 21st Century learning
  • Learn with peers about how to incorporate 21st Century skills into core content
  • Develop a schoolwide project that models the fusion of 21st Century skills and academic content
  • Work with a team of professionals to implement projects in 2012-13

Teams should be comprised of 3-5 members, including an administrator. Each teacher on the team will receive a $500 stipend to support their attendance at the summer institute. Teams will receive follow-up support and coaching to implement 21st Century Learning projects in 2012-13. Each team will also receive $250 toward project development and participate in cross-county collaboration and sharing. See the application packet (pdf) for details.
