A Brief History
For the past nine years, the Henrico learning community has come together to celebrate innovative learning with a teacher ceremony and student showcase known as “Henrico 21.” This year, in honor of its 10th anniversary and our new Henrico Learner Profile, Henrico 21 will be one exhibition, featuring students, teachers, and leaders together, sharing their school’s best learner-centered experiences to promote the development of critical knowledge, skills, and attributes for life readiness.
Anytime, Anywhere: Henrico 21 promotes the idea that learning continues beyond classroom walls and bell schedules. Learners seek and share answers to questions whenever they are curious, and possess the technology and mindset to learn actively at school, from home, and within the community.
Authentic & Connected: Henrico 21 allows students to exhibit questions and solutions to problems that are important to them and their school. They stand with peers, teachers, and leaders to proudly share the learning process and products that contribute toward outcomes that matter.
Student-Owned: Henrico 21 furthers student ownership of learning as they reflect on and share their experiences with an audience beyond the classroom. Students highlight how they practice student agency by sharing their voice and choice in the learning process and in their products of meaning and significance.
Community Supported: Henrico 21 provides the opportunity for students to represent themselves and their school by sharing their learning experience with their families and community to celebrate their achievements.
What will be Exhibited?
Each Henrico school and program center will exhibit its best example of a high-quality #LifeReadyLearning experience.
