Abstract

Abstract: The William and Ida Friday Institute (FI) for Educational Innovation, in collaboration with its education, government, and corporate partners, has developed a service delivery technology platform that will launch the research and outreach efforts of its 21st Century Teaching and Learning Initiative. FI is designed to capitalize on North Carolina State University's long history of committed engagement in the public, private and nonprofit sectors of the state and its leadership role in economic development. This paper will consider the role of the Institute's innovative service delivery technology platform in promoting 21st century skills for teachers and students in rural and underserved school districts in North Carolina. Specifically, we will address 1) the development of the model using a set of cross-sector partners, 2) the plan for implementation with targeted rural educational districts, 3) a multidisciplinary research agenda, and 4) the anticipated challenges of such an endeavor.
