There’s nothing like an experiential site visit to give leaders and educators an aha moment when it comes to understanding the power of Linked Learning pathways.
We sponsored our first experiential site visit in February 2007 at Arthur A. Benjamin Health Professions High School in Sacramento. A group of about 100 policymakers, educators, and researchers “went to school,” experiencing first hand how high quality Linked Learning prepares young people for lasting success in both college and career. The day was so powerful that since then, in partnership with nine districts that made up the initial California Linked Learning District Initiative, we’ve helped sponsor dozens of additional visits.
I’m pleased to say that over the next six months, we have three site visits coming up.
