Once is proud to be featured on Transcend's Innovative Models Exchange!
Despite innovation across nearly every sector of society, a one-size-fits all approach has governed mainstream schooling in America for more than a century. Identifying and sharing learning models are key to spreading innovative approaches to learning. The Innovative Models Exchange is designed for communities inspired to innovate but who don’t want to reinvent the wheel—it helps them learn and borrow from amazing innovations created by communities across the country.
We are proud that our model is among the inaugural set of innovative designs included in the Exchange. Along with Transcend, we invite school communities to engage with this free library of innovative models that can be implemented locally. The Exchange also seeks additional innovative models to add to the platform.
Visit The Innovative Models Exchange and begin your journey to innovation. Read more about The Innovative Models Exchange in these stories from The 74 and EdSurge.
