The 21st Century has empowered renewed focus on several educational strategies with a common theme. Whether noted as Project-Based Learning, 21st Century Learning or even an updated focus on Career and Technical Education, each of these themes stresses creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration as essential ingredients to prepare students for the future. Schools and educational leaders have an invigorated emphasis to prepare students for work and college in collaborative environments and cooperative work teams. School design is following suit with spaces and plans that encourage multi-disciplinary education that more closely simulates the workplace in cities that are working and growing. Northeastern cities are experiencing corporate and cultural renaissance… turning into vibrant new communities powered by workforce creativity. Join the Association for Learning Environments Northeast Region in a “City that Works,” Providence, Rhode Island, as we discuss what it takes to make “Schools that Work” in the 21st Century.
