The Alliance for Excellent Education held the first in its series of webinars for Project 24. This inaugural webinar looked at one of the gears in the Project 24 framework: curriculum and instruction.
The Project 24 planning framework examines the extent to which schools and districts evidence a more flexible, consistent, and concentrated approach to academic content design and accessibility. It is important for teachers to have robust and adaptive tools to customize the instruction for groups of students or on a student-to-student basis to ensure relevance and deep understanding of complex issues and topics.
The Project 24 panel of experts, an experienced group of nationally recognized leaders with demonstrated records of success, provided insight into how they approach curriculum and instruction in planning for digital learning from the perspectives of a superintendent, chief technology officer, principal, and educator. They also discussed key areas of curriculum and instruction in this framework, including college- and career-ready deeper learning; personalized learning; work that is collaborative, relevant, and applied; ways to leverage technology; and integration of twenty-first-century skills. Bob Wise, president of the Alliance and former governor of West Virginia, moderated the discussion.
