A bold vision for the future of learning in Nevada.
A Portrait of a Learner is a community wide vision of the mindsets and skills essential for success, now and into a rapidly evolving future.
To build Nevadan’s shared vision, numerous community conversations invited us to think about how to prepare students to build thriving communities and good lives of their choosing.
The Nevada Future of Learning Network keeps educators, community partners, parents and students connected in the formative work of developing the systems and structures needed to advance student-centered learning practices in classrooms statewide.
