The Alliance for Excellent Education Invites You to Attend a Webinar on

Leading with a Vision: Using Time Differently to Provide New and Better Student Learning Experiences

Buddy Berry, Superintendent, Eminence Independent Schools (KY)
Apolinar Marroquin, Principal, Granite Hills High School (Porterville, CA)
Bob Rothman, Senior Fellow, Alliance for Excellent Education
Jonathan Spear, Cofounder, Generation Schools Network (Brooklyn, NY and Denver, CO)

Please join the Alliance for Excellent Education for a webinar on how schools and schools systems are using time differently to increase learning opportunities for students, such as opportunities for work- and project-based learning.

Schools and school systems throughout the country have been creating innovative models to transform the learning experience for young people, particularly those who have been poorly served by the education system. While these innovations differ in important ways, they share at least one element in common: a commitment to rethinking the use of time.

In putting these new models into place, their architects recognized that the traditional seven-hour day and nine-month structure of schools impeded their ability to develop stronger learning environments. In response, they restructured the clock and calendar to provide more and better learning time for students. By doing so, these innovative educators are achieving their goal of enhancing the learning environment for all young people. Panelists will discuss how technology has supported increasing the amount of time students are engaged inside and outside of the classroom. Panelists will also address questions submitted by viewers from across the country.

This webinar is made possible with support from the Ford Foundation.

    As a Kentuckian, I’m especially proud of what’s largely happening in education here and with what Mr. Berry is doing in their district. I like the idea of having Wifi on the school buses. I would like to learn more about the partnership they have with Bellarmine University for dual enrollment.
