Learner Centered.Community Powered.Forward Focused.

The Nevada Future of Learning Network is central to the Nevada Department of Education’s ongoing efforts to transform Nevada’s education landscape with personalized, competency-based learning. The network connects educators, community partners, parents and students in the formative work of developing the systems and structures needed to advance student-centered learning practices in classrooms throughout the state.

Together, we will make connections, build capacity and realize a bold vision for the future – one where Nevada’s pre-K-12 system ensures every learner will thrive.

About the Network

Nevada’s pre-k-12 education system strives to meet the needs of every learner. The Future of Learning Network is bringing Nevadans together to make this vision a reality.

In 2021 and 2022, Nevada educators, students, families, businesses and community members came together to imagine the future of education and create an action plan for how to get there. Establishing the Nevada Future of Learning Network is a critical first step in NDE’s systems transformation journey. 

With support from the Nevada Department of Education, the Nevada Future of Learning network is partnering with schools, districts and communities to deliver innovative, personalized learning opportunities for Nevada’s students. Through this learner-centered education model, NDE is shifting its mindset from seat time requirements to student mastery, creating flexible learning environments and providing a range of learning experiences and supports that help students demonstrate what they know, and what they know how to do. 

Together, we can shape the future of learning.
