Be a 21st Century Learning Exemplar

Thursday, December 17, 2015

The Partnership for 21st Century Skills (P21) is inviting applications until January 15, 2016, for its 2016-17 cohort of P21 Exemplars. These schools get national recognition and put their successful examples of 21st century learning in front of policymakers, foundations, and education stakeholders. There is no application or participation fee.

Current and past exemplars continue to be highlighted on the P21 website, including three from Wisconsin:              

Schools may be nominated but most probably find it easiest to fill out the application form themselves. Finalist schools are visited by P21 teams who use an evaluation rubric to guide selection of the exemplars for the year. The goal is to find schools and districts that have “transformed their students’ learning experiences,” “preparing students for college, career and citizenship by embedding critical 21st century competencies into the learning environment.”
