“Career Connected Learning is here today…and working.”

Imagining Tomorrow

This pioneering film sets the stage for the movement now called “career-connected learning,” putting students in touch with real skills, real mentors and teachers, and real jobs.

Thanks to collaboration with Washington State University and especially with Spokane’s Itron Corporation, we spent six months profiling innovative programs across the region that are introducing high school students to the skill sets (and even the ability to fail constructively) needed for success in the 21st Century.

  • How do you fill the skills gap between what businesses need and schools provide?
  • How do you teach students the secrets of success at careers, not just filling jobs?
  • How do you make academic work relevant in a time of relentless change?

“Imagining Tomorrow’ helps answer these questions, focusing on school districts, educators, and innovators creating the pipelines for the next generation of truly successful learners and doers. Along the way we witness an extraordinary competition for young learners well on their way to Nobel Prizes. Or at least the careers of their dreams!
