CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR INNOVATION IN LEARNING

The Center on Innovations in Learning (CIL) defines an innovation as “something that replaces the standard product, program, practice, or process with something better, thus creating a new standard.” CIL works with the U.S. Department of Education’s Regional Comprehensive Centers and with state education agencies to assist them in making informed choices about the wealth of innovative products and services in the educational field. CIL provides the knowledge, activities, and technical support that, by making those choices, help states build their capacity to stimulate, select, implement, and scale up learning innovations. The center focuses its work on innovative educational practices in four priority areas: personalized learning, learning technology, learning in and out of school, and innovation for students with disabilities.

Virtual Learning Program Rubric - As the demand and opportunity for virtual learning grows, so does the need to evaluate its qualities and impact. This rubric is the result of a collaborative effort between CIL and the Northeast Comprehensive Center in response to requests from three states to collectively design a regionally-consistent evaluation tool for virtual learning.

 

Personal Competencies/Personalized Learning - In 2014, the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) State Collaborative on Assessment and Student Standards (SCASS) requested information on the practical application of personalized learning concepts by teachers. These two publications were created in response to that request.
