2009 State Board Criteria 21st Century Learning
Environments Initiative
  • Competitive grants issued under Title II, Part D,
    Enhancing Education through Technology (EETT)
    shall assist Local Education Agencies (LEAs) or
    eligible local partnerships in implementing and
    supporting comprehensive, technology-based
    solutions in elementary and secondary schools,
    both inside and outside the traditional
    classroom, to improve student academic
    achievement and the use of data and educational
    technology as effective tools for improving
    teaching and learning. Also eligible are local
    and state efforts to use technology in promoting
    parent and family involvement in education and to
    enhance communication and the sharing of
    teaching, learning, data, information, and best
    practices among students, parents, teachers,
    principals, administrators, and other education
    stakeholders In addition, all grants funded under
    this program will incorporate concepts of
    Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and contain a
    rigorous evaluation component, particularly
    regarding the impact on student academic
    achievement.

Purpose 21st Century Learning Environments
Initiative
  • The purpose of the grant program is to foster
    21st century learning environments in Michigan
    schools that support innovative teaching and
    learning strategies, enabled by high access to
    educational technology, and that help accelerate
    achievement in core academic subject areas, close
    achievement gaps, and prepare Michigan students
    for 21st century jobs. (P.A. 73 of 2009)

Environments Initiative
  • This grant program is targeted to local education
    agencies (LEAs), public school academies (PSAs),
    and eligible partnerships (i.e., consortia of
    LEAs, PSAs, and/or ISDs) that include at least
    one high need district (LEA), which can be
    defined as one that
  • Is among those districts in Michigan with the
    highest numbers or percentages (minimum of 40
    percent of total blended FTE count enrollment
    claiming free and reduced lunch) of children from
    families with incomes below the poverty line as
    defined by the TITLE I - PART A, ALLOCATIONS

Categories 21st Century Learning Environments
Initiative
  • Student-Centered, 21st Century Learning
    Environments These competitive grants seek to
    support implementation of evidence-based
    innovative models of student-centered learning
    (i.e., instructional strategies focused on the
    student's needs, abilities, interests, and
    learning styles with the teacher as a facilitator
    of learning). These 21st century learning
    environments should not be dependent on physical
    facilities and time they should incorporate
    concepts of Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
    and the effective use of mobile and one-to-one
    computing technology. Priority will be given to
    dropout prevention and reengagement initiatives
    that utilize digital environments to enable
    project-based learning, nontraditional
    instructional methods, cyber learning, and other
    methods aimed at engaging students who have
    dropped out or who are at-risk of dropping out.

Categories 21st Century Learning Environments
Initiative
  • 2. Digital Professional Learning Environments for
    Administrators These competitive grants seek to
    support the extension of online professional
    learning communities for district and building
    level administrators. The goal of these
    communities is to facilitate an increase in
    school leaders capacity to lead systemic,
    technology-based school improvement efforts.
    Efforts should focus on 1) dropout prevention and
    2) creating 21st century digital learning
    environments for all students, including the use
    of project based learning and mobile technology
    based learning strategies.

10
Categories 21st Century Learning Environments
Initiative
  • 3. Algebra For All This competitive grant seeks
    to support the successful development and
    implementation of a nontraditional concept of
    algebra instruction for the successful completion
    of Algebra I by students who have traditionally
    struggled in mathematics. The winning applicant
    should propose a blended professional development
    program where mathematics teachers from across
    the state engage in active, sustained learning
    that strongly impacts student achievement with
    Algebra I content. The program is intended to
    support the work of the Michigan Mathematics and
    Science Center Network (MMSCN) and Michigan
    Virtual University (MVU) in this collaborative
    project, and fund the evaluation of program
    effectiveness.

Categories 21st Century Learning Environments
Initiative
  • 4. eLearning Consortium This continuation
    grant continues the support of Michigan Virtual
    University (MVU) statewide activities through
    partnerships with several intermediate school
    districts (ISDs). The goal is to strengthen the
    virtual schools ability to serve Michigan
    students, particularly at-risk students, by
    pursuing activities, policies, and practices that
    increase the overall number of Michigan Virtual
    High School course enrollments and course
    completions.

Categories 21st Century Learning Environments
Initiative
  • 5. Michigan Learns Online This continuation
    grant advances the expansion of online learning
    throughout the state of Michigan by supporting
    multiple options for e-learning and/or virtual
    learning for all Michigan schools at the district
    level, particularly secondary schools, in meeting
    the Michigan Merit Curriculum (MCC) requirements.
    Emphasis will be placed on assisting teachers in
    adopting blended teaching strategies and
    practices that utilize low-cost / no cost online
    resources to improve student learning.

Initiative
  • 6. MI Champions 21st Century Learning Classroom
    by Classroom This continuation grant seeks to
    support a successful, statewide model for
    professional development that increases the
    capacity of teachers at the building level to
    implement student-centered, 21st century learning
    environments, including the use of project based
    learning and mobile technology based learning
    strategies.
