The Ford Next Generation Learning (NGL) Framework is a three strand approach to transforming education.
Ford NGL mobilizes educators, local employers, and community leaders to prepare a new generation of young people who will graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and life – prepared for success in our modern economy.
Three distinct, but interconnected strands comprise the Ford NGL Framework.
These strands enable whole communities to design and carry out a long-term plan for revitalizing and revolutionizing education.
TRANSFORMING TEACHING & LEARNING
Creating meaningful learning experiences that enable students to learn and apply academic, 21st century, and technical knowledge & skills to real-world challenges.
TRANSFORMING THE SECONDARY SCHOOL EXPERIENCE
Maintaining career and interest-based academies, collaborative cultures, structures, and practices.
TRANSFORMING BUSINESS & CIVIC ENGAGEMENT
Engaging educators, local employers, and community leaders in building then sustaining a transformed secondary school experience.
