Future Ready Framework

A Systemic Approach to Implementation

At the heart of Future Ready and the Interactive Planning Dashboard is the Future Ready Framework, a robust structure for digital learning visioning, planning, and implementation focused on Personalized Student Learning.

The research-based Framework emphasizes collaborative leadership and creating an innovative school culture. All content focuses on seven key areas (called gears), plus leadership, each of which are addressed during the comprehensive planning process. This framework keeps student learning at the heart of all decision-making.

The Interactive Planning Dashboard

A five-step collaborative planning process for districts

An essential component to becoming Future Ready, is making a systemic digital learning plan before purchasing the next round of technology. The Interactive Planning Dashboard offers districts a way to collaborate and align research-based strategies and practitioner-tested techniques with each district’s specific needs, allowing school district leaders to create systemic action plans for student-centered, personalized learning before purchasing additional technology—ensuring a much smoother implementation.

Upon completion, districts will have created a digital learning implementation plan, full of research-based strategies, including stakeholder input, local context, and district team leadership responsibilities. A full research synthesis, developed by the US Department of Education, is also available.
