Resolution for 21st Century Education Innovation
Our top initiative in 2019 is co-creating and seeking legislative approval of a Resolution for Education Innovation to empower Nevada's education leaders to revision and transform its' system of education for universal student success.
This proposal aims to empower the S.B. 91 Commission on Education Innovation (if passed) to Nevada's innovator communities to design and demonstrate a learner powered ecosystem that will enable every student, regardless of their background or address, to thrive to their full potential as a contributor to their communities, state and country.

Our Challenge & Opportunity
Nevada aspires to be a hub for world-class innovative business.
We need all graduates prepared to deliver the vision.
The Education Innovation Collaborative (EIC) is an organization designed to catalyze community engagement to support ALL schools and educators to prepare ALL students for 21st century life, college, and occupations in Nevada.
TO UNLEASH THE LEARNING POTENTIAL AND CREATIVITY OF STUDENTS, EDUCATORS, SCHOOLS, AND THE COMMUNITY -
ENABLING ALL YOUNG PEOPLE TO BUILD THEIR PERSONAL VISIONS,
ENGAGE WITH THEIR COMMUNITY,
AND LEAD THE CHANGE TO A BETTER WORLD.
With diverse team members from education, business, technology, social services, community-building, and transformative learning and change, we seek to help the NV system of education - including district and charter public schools - to be part of a dynamic 21st century deep learning eco-system.
Our three-prong plan is to facilitate community-wide Action Research processes involving
Collaborative Learning & Planning
Advocating for Students & Systemic Change
In the EIC History tab above, view the XQ Super School grant proposal that earned semi-finalist status in the XQ Institute's Challenge in 2016.
In the HOW INNOVATE tab, see our proposed design for an edPORTAL that will enable collaboration among innovators and community advocacy for students and systemic change through Innovation Zone Communities who are developing and implementing personalized Learner-Powered Ecosystems - which will empower innovative teaching and learning in schools across Nevada. The edPORTAL design aims to enable the cycles of actions described above:
collaborating to develop next generation practices (research and planning), incubating innovation, and advocating for systemic change.
In Phase 1, we are working to develop and support a Collaborative Learning Nevada (CLN) networking platform to nurture innovative program success in and among pilot schools. The CL Network aims to include and support innovators across existing and future programs in K-12 schools including Nevada Ready 21, Competency-Based Education Pilot Network, Summit Learning Platform users, STEM Academies,CTE programs, and charter schools.
If you are an educator, school leader, counselor or education resource provider from any of the above who is interested to learn more about participating in the CLN, we'd love to hear from you!
