Learning Landscapes Challenge

Description: The Learning Landscapes Challenge is focused on designing and building future-focused K-12 education environments. Emphasis on the connections between digital, in school, and community-based learning experiences are encouraged. Grantees should integrate the physical, digital, and social infrastructure needed to provide updated educational outcomes for students to perform transformational impact. The Challenge unfolds in three phases:

  • Phase 1: Concept DevelopmentInnovative solutions should include identify a significant learning need for a community, physical, digital, social infrastructure solutions, the intended theory of change (evidence-based, learning experiences), any partnership plans, feasibility plans, or multidimensional needs for scaling impact.

 

  • Phase 2: AcceleratorPhase 1 winners are invited to Phase 2, which requires a 14-week virtual accelerator to refine concepts and build partnerships. Impact and feasibility are the focus of Phase 2, which should include the holistic integration of novel infrastructure solutions, researching the learning need for the target community, the depth of impact, extent of potential community engagement, and feasibility of implementation through prototyping.

 

  • Phase 3: IncubatorPhase 2 winners will be invited to Phase 3, which provides participants with tailored support and mentoring focused on concept implementation and overall sustainability. Phase 3 begins with an in-person boot camp focused on sustainability. At the end of Phase 3, projects will need to identify their ingenuity of infrastructure solution, scaled learning need, impact and community engagement, and overall feasibility.

Amount: Each phase includes a different amount of funding.

  • Phase 1 winners, approximately 40, will receive $5,000.
  • Phase 2 winners, approximately 5, receive $200,000.
  • Phase 3 winners, approximately 2, receive $500,000.

Eligibility: Tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations
