Future of Learning Intiative Overview


FLI@SJSU brings together educators, researchers, and policymakers from across early childhood, K-12, and higher education sectors to reimagine learning.  The traditional model of American schooling, built for a factory-based economy, does not align with the needs of our imagination age, nor does it adequately address concerns about equitable-access to the high quality education needed in our diverse, democratic society.  FLI@SJSU incubates innovation to identify and highlight “what works” in diverse educational ecosystems.
