NEXT.cc e-Learning supports schools greening their curriculum, campus, and communities while encouraging young imaginations to find places to contribute. NEXT.cc Journeys nurture creativity and look at how culture, society, technology, and the environment shape design responses.
Who We AreNEXT.cc © is an eLearning DESIGNopedia created a multi-generational team of professionals and students to share sustainable practices across diverse populations. It introduces what design is, what design does, and why design is important. Transdisciplinary activities connect nine scales of investigation- nano, pattern, object, space, architecture, neighborhood, urban, region, and world linking place-based projects with virtual field trips, museum tours, research institutions and contemporary art, science and design practices introducing environmental systems thinking.
What We DoNEXT.cc empowers youth voices to engage contemporary issues as active citizens using everyday technology to contribute to better life in their communities. NEXT.cc’s collaborative team develops standards aligned systems thinking activities shared in workshops with K-2, 3-5, middle and high school teachers and students with place-based projects. The iterative, explorative nature of design stimulates imagination and allows for failure, reflection, evaluation, and rethinking our future together.
Why It MattersTwo-thirds of the US population does not attend college, yet lives in communities. Architecture and the built environment serves as this living skin as our past, present and future DNA. The built and natural environments are everything to human prospect and wellbeing and need to be a part of every person's education.
