Creating Success for 21st-Century Learners
Programs. $4,800,000 the first year and $4,800,000 the second year are for programs and purposes related to the historical and cultural heritage of the state of Minnesota, conducted by the Minnesota Historical Society.
Research shows that traditional teaching tools, such as textbooks and lectures, don't fully engage today's students who have grown up surrounded by technology and who use it in their daily lives. This biennium, an additional four Minnesota Historical Society historic sites are improving their service to "21st Century Learners" and their teachers and parents. In total, 14 sites and museums are revamping their field trip programs and developing online resources requested by teachers and parents in earlier research, so that 21st century learners can develop a stronger connection to the study of history.
