      • The Common Core is Coming!


        from NewSchools Venture Fund Added 506 3 0

        The Common Core State Standards aims public education at exactly the right goal: college-and-career readiness for all students. To meet these inspiring and ambitious standards demands transformational changes in teaching and learning. With fewer than two years before the initial administration of Common Core-aligned tests in 2014-15, we hear perspectives from a panel of practitioner leaders and lead standards-author (and 2012 NewSchools Change Agent of the year) David Coleman. Panelists discuss early efforts and lessons learned, talk about the resources that have been most helpful in implementation thus far, and articulate areas most in need of additional R&D from the entrepreneurial sector.

          • How Disruptive Can We Be: CCSS and the Future of Digital Learning


            from NewSchools Venture Fund Added 121 2 0

            Jacob Schmookler, in Invention and Economic Growth, wrote that “the amount of invention is governed by the extent of the market.” Having common standards in over forty states certainly extends the market for K-12 education tools and systems. But will CCSS really lead to disruptive innovations in teaching and learning? How have developers responded thus far and just how different will schools and classrooms look 3, 5 or 10 years from now? This interactive session provides an opportunity to wrestle with these questions.

              • Transforming Trauma: Promoting Resilience


                from NewSchools Venture Fund Added 224 2 0

                As we raise the bar for students in our schools, their need for social and emotional well-being and effective stress management skills increases markedly. Nurturing these skills is both important and challenging for teachers and school leaders working with students who have experienced trauma and toxic stress. In this session, Dr. Joyce Dorado will help us understand the neurobiology of stress and trauma, and how we can use this understanding to promote resilience and school success for all members of a school community. She will share strategies and interventions that can be implemented by teachers, administrators, and other school staff to transform stress and trauma into wellness and resilience.
