NGLC Shifts Focus To Funding Experimental Schools | MindShift

For the past three years, Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) has been granting money to a broad range of education ventures that used technology in education. The aim has been to help grow or scale ideas that shows some promise. Recently, however, the organization has steadily moved towards funding schools that want to shift from traditional teaching to more experimental models. This week, the organization announced it will offer a set of grants totaling $3.6 million to two school districts — Washington D.C. and Chicago — with the hopes of building up model schools in other partner cities in the future that have the support of local groups and government.
