The UK Next Generation Leadership Academy (NxGLA) seeks leaders who understand that the educational system, originally designed for an Industrial Era, is no longer adequate in preparing students for a diverse, global economy.
We engage leaders at all levels to share innovative models and approaches for creating personalized systems of deeper learning to:
Transform the teaching and learning experience
Leverage technology for disruptive change
Facilitate strategic planning efforts in systems redesign
Coach and support change leaders
For over thirteen years, participation in the Academy has sparked innovation around next-generation learning across the state.
Leaders who have participated overwhelmingly credit the academy experience with helping them move forward in creating learner-centered innovations in their schools and districts. Students and teachers are more engaged as a result, and student achievement has improved as a result.
