Nevada's Future of Learning
Empowering Learners Through a Personalized Learning Experience

The Portrait of a Nevada Learner

Where Academic Excellence Meets Real-World Skills.

Amid concerning absenteeism rates, severe teacher shortages, and skills gaps in higher education and workforce, the Nevada Department of Education is crafting a community-driven vision for the future of learning.

A Learner Portrait is a nationally recognized framework that outlines the skills that empower learners to absorb, evaluate, and retain rigorous academic concepts. Developed with input from Nevadans, the integration of durable skills like critical thinking, collaboration, and communication into the learning experience makes school more exciting and relevant to students' lives.


Connecting Communities for Learner Success 

The Portrait of a Nevada Learner is the heartbeat of the Nevada Future of Learning Network, which connects students, educators, parents, and community members to collectively promote learner-centered practices in Nevada classrooms.
