Edutopia: The George Lucas Educational Foundation

Yes, the George Lucas of Star Wars fame is interested in education. Edutopia focuses on what is working in public education. Content is organized around six core concepts:
Comprehensive Assessment , Integrated Studies ,
Project Learning , Social & Emotional Learning ,
Technology Integration and Teacher Development

As you might expect, a video library is one tool available for browsing through information about successful programs around the country. Spend some time exploring how other educators are using the power of technology to provide an enhanced learning experience for their students. You'll find some projects very similar to ideas that have been explored in our school system and some new strategies as well.

You can also respond to The Poll to voice your opinion and request a free copy of Edutopia magazine.

Make time to dream. Then work to make your dreams come true.
