2017 Challenge


ANNOUNCING THE 2017 CHALLENGE

 

IN ITS THIRD YEAR, LRNG INNOVATORS IS LAUNCHING A NEW CHALLENGE, INVITING EDUCATORS TO IMAGINE ENGAGING WAYS TO HELP YOUNG PEOPLE EXPLORE THEIR INTERESTS, THEREBY IGNITING A PASSION THAT CAN LEAD TO COLLEGE, TO A CAREER, OR HAVING A POSITIVE IMPACT ON THEIR COMMUNITY. WE SEEK PROPOSALS FOR PROGRAMS, CURRICULA, OR PROJECTS THAT ACTIVELY HELP YOUTH DISCOVER INTERESTS CONNECTING THE SPHERES OF THEIR LIVES, BOTH IN AND OUT OF SCHOOL, AND PROVIDE POTENTIAL FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES.

FOR EXAMPLE, HOW DO WE HELP A CHILD IDENTIFY AND LINK A PASSION FOR VIDEO GAMES TO MATH AND SCIENCE, AND LATER A CAREER AS A VIDEO GAME DEVELOPER? THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS. PROPOSALS SHOULD BE LED BY TEAMS OF TEACHERS, BUT WILL BENEFIT FROM COLLABORATION BETWEEN OTHER EDUCATORS AND COMMUNITY LEADERS WHO WORK WITH YOUTH IN LEARNING-CENTERED INSTITUTIONS LIKE MUSEUMS, LIBRARIES, AND AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS, WHERE INTERESTS ARE OFTEN ACTIVATED.

2014 Challenge

2014 Challenge


 
 
 

LRNG was founded in 2014 by The Show Me Campaign, in partnership with the National Writing Project and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. LRNG Innovators is a movement that’s rethinking and reshaping the learning process into one that’s more relevant to the students of today, and better prepares them for the world of tomorrow. Each year, LRNG issues a new challenge to educators asking, “What innovations or solutions would you bring to the learning process around this issue?”

In 2015 LRNG awarded 14 grants in 10 states across the country to educators who were asked to solve the challenge of limited time and space for creative learning.
