Innovative Learning

Purpose of Innovative Learning Curriculum

The purpose of the Innovative Learning Curriculum (ILC) is to create and implement a framework that will ultimately enhance a student’s knowledge and skills in grade level content areas, coupled with an increase in engagement through a project based learning approach. Each lesson will address the unique skills, interests, and deficits/gaps in student performance and achievement. ShwinnInnovations, LLC and the Push2BeGreat Brand have joined forces to address a critical need facing the field of education, low performing schools. The Innovative Learning Curriculum (ILC) will transform and accelerate (K-12) curriculum and instructional practices to meet the individual needs of youth in our inner cities. This unique design will be the springboard for repairing and reviving our educational system in the 21st century.

Mission/Vision of Innovative Learning Curriculum

The mission of the Innovative Learning Curriculum (ILC) is to PUSH and encourage students to accomplish their greatest goals. Innovations in education are of particular importance because education plays a critical role in creating a sustainable future. “Innovation resembles mutation, the biological process that keeps species evolving so they can better compete for survival” (Hoffman and Holzhuter, 2012, p. 3). Innovation, therefore, is to be regarded as an instrument of necessary and positive change. The Innovative Learning Curriculum (ILC) is a NEW cross-curricular, Project Based Learning (PBL) approach to teaching and learning that addresses the need for increased student engagement in K-12 classrooms across diverse, urban settings. The Innovative Learning Curriculum (ILC) will transform and accelerate (K-12) curriculum and instructional practices to meet the individual needs of youth in low performing schools. The curriculum will bring out the best in students that may feel like there’s no light at the end of the tunnel. Teachers will feel empowered to provide a uniquely designed curriculum that will be implemented to a diverse population of learners. ILC is key to growing and evolving the educational system and paradigms for our youth and many more.

Goals of Innovative Learning Curriculum

ShwinnInnovations, LLC and the Push2BeGreat Brand continue to work diligently to seek out partnerships with local school districts. Once these partnership are established, efforts will begin to prepare for piloting of ILC’s curriculum in a phased approach (September 2021). We will first pilot the Innovative Learning Curriculum (ILC) in the inner cities of Detroit and Flint to gauge its successes. Teachers effective in their instructional practices will be identified and receive training in ILC. When supporting diverse populations of learners, educators must incorporate instructional practices that give each student equitable access and opportunity to learn. In the 21st century, we now know, instructors must be equipped with a toolbox heavily equipped with a range of methods / strategies, materials and assessments that will support all students through high-quality instruction in the K-12 setting. The unique design and framework of the Innovative Learning Curriculum (ILC) will transform the way instruction is delivered in our inner cities, making content meaningful to students and engaging learners with interactive projects that embed grade level Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
