Journey to 2030 Roadmap

  1. 1. Journey to 2030: Our Vision for the Future of Teaching and Learning azk12.orgWelcome to the Journey to 2030: a special endeavor launched by the Arizona K12 Center in partnership withthe Center for Teaching Quality (CTQ).This presentation serves as a Roadmap to 2030. It outlines where we’ve been, where we are now, and wherewe are going, as a team committed to the quality of education we provide to our students and communities.In  2011,  the  Arizona  K12  Center,  with  partners  from  the  Center  for  Teaching  Quality  (CTQ)  launched  the  Arizona  TeacherSoluCons  2030  Team,  made  up  of  20  soluCons-­‐focused  teacher  leaders  from  across  the  state  who  were  willing  to  push  themselves  to  think  outside  of  what  is;  and  begin  looking  towards  what  could  be.  They  represent  diverse  communiCes,  backgrounds,  and  areas  of  experCse.  They  represent  all  levels  of  experience  and  have  demonstrated  themselves  to  be  respected  members  of  the  profession  and  accomplished  teachers.
  2. 2. Where We Started Arizona TeacherSolutions 2030 Footprint February 2011Months of deliberation and study led the Arizona TeacherSolutions 2030 Team to create an innovative vision for the futureof Arizona’s schools. From February 2011 to June 2012, the team met face to face and in virtual environments,brainstorming and unpacking issues that most impacted them and their students. This graphic is the result of their initialbrainstorm. Based loosely on the 2020 Forecast: Creating the Future of Learning (, the ideasrepresented here formed the beginnings of the four major tenants vetted to a larger body of educators in the Summer of2012.At the Arizona K12 Center’s Seventh Annual Teacher Leadership Institute in June 2012, the team presented their ideas toover 100 educators and administrators in order to seek practical ideas around how to make this vision a reality. At thisevent, these ideas were vetted to a distinguished panel of policy makers and educational leaders representing theArizona Department of Education, the Arizona State Board of Education, Expect More Arizona, and the United StatesDepartment of Education (USDOE).
