NLET’s Theory of End-to-End Transformation
NLET believes that to support leaners starting in middle school or returning as adults, technology systems need to evolve that service and stay with that leaner across their full education-to-employment journey and its changes over time. To do so requires a stable method of tracking credentials, aligning skills held by individuals, taught by programs and consumed by employers. This requires learner-owned records, student support in math, the weakest scholastic area, and managing K12 data leading to higher education or work in order to build a strong learner foundation.
NLET’s Four Critical Areas of Transformation
CREDENTIAL ALLIANCE / END-TO-END ECOSYSTEMS: Longitudinal cloud-based education and training pathway management linking education segments, regional nonprofits, CTE and Workforce programs and employers removes barriers and promotes awareness and access.
MATH NETWORK: Transformation is necessary inside and outside of formal education to achieve equitable, accessible and complete Math Education K-to-College and K-to-Work.
COMPARATIVE K12 DATA: Transformation of State-level K12 and K-to-Work data in comparative systems for real-time management for students, teachers, trainers, administrators and researchers turns compliance data into performance management tools.
STUDENT-OWNED RECORDS: True transformation will only occur when students (and families) as well as officials have fully accessible official and informal records in one student-owned system that gives the student agency and an ability to interact more broadly for better access to education and opportunities.
