Creating a New Culture of Teaching and Learning
A powerful new culture of empowered teaching and fearless learning is emerging. Access to more timely information and communication tools can empower educators to focus on the individual learning needs of their students. These same tools can lead to more collegiality, build stronger community relationships and empower students to be more self-directed. This webinar presents clear examples of how this new culture has been achieved.

Consider Supporting Relief Efforts in Haiti

Consider Supporting Relief Efforts in Haiti

In support of the tragic event and ongoing relief efforts in Haiti, we urge you to consider making a donation to the American Red Cross.

According to the American Red Cross:

Countless requests have come from people wanting to help.  The best way to do that is to make a donation to the American Red Cross International Response Fund at redcross.org or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS. Donors can designate their gifts to Haiti relief.  Donations to the International Response Fund allows the American Red Cross to respond to global emergencies and disasters.

In addition, several hundred thousand people have chosen to make a mobile donation.  Donors can text “Haiti” to 90999 on their cell phone to send a $10 donation to support Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti.  The mobile giving effort raised more than $3 million by Thursday morning, and all money raised goes to support Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti.

A Conversation with Alan November and Lucille E. Davy

A Conversation with Alan November and Lucille E. Davy

Recently, with the help of Kean University’s Center for Innovative Education, Alan had the opportunity to speak with New Jersey Commissioner of Education, Lucille Davy. The two discuss what has been identified by American businesses as the critical skills needed for jobs and careers in the 21st century.

Additionally, information is provided on Department of Education initiatives created to guide schools in preparing students to be college and career ready. New Jersey schools view parents as valuable partners who inspire their children to achieve and offer support in the education process. This communication was created as part of an effort to keep parents informed about the goals of the New Jersey public education system to prepare an engaged citizenry, who are responsible and caring adults and productive members of a world class workforce.
