Communications

Effective communications is a cornerstone of successful innovation in education. Strong two-way communications builds engagement, trust, and credibility. District leaders are recognizing the need for communications assistance to build understanding and support for their blended and personalized learning efforts.

How can I collaborate with the community to innovate in my district?

The Community Collaboration for School Innovation toolkit helps districts shift away from a community engagement model that centers around districts pushing information out, to a new community collaboration model that instead encourages districts to pull in guidance from the community, and leverage that input to drive innovations.

How can I communicate our shift to competency-based learning?

TLA Recommendations
Competency-based learning represents a significant departure from the "everyone moves at the same pace + seat time equals knowledge” approach that dominates our nation’s approach to learning. Given the significance of this change, districts should engage thoughtfully with all key stakeholders regarding the foundational elements and key benefits of this shift.
