The Obama administration recently recognized the power of California's Linked Learning as a model that provides strong academic and career preparation by connecting learning time and teaching to real-world experiences.
Effective data use is at the heart of Linked Learning's efforts and is helping expand the work to serve even more California students. At a recent White House summit on next generation high schools Linked Learning pledged to nearly double the number of students it currently supports.
With support from the James Irvine Foundation, IEBC developed a suite of data solutions to support Linked Learning districts. These products and services are designed to generate data reports that guide continuous program improvement. This approach allows the Foundation and Linked Learning Alliance to monitor progress as it expands, and respond with midcourse corrections and adjustments.
