Specifically, educators shared what they are doing to ensure that struggling secondary students are prepared for college, a career, and life. Their insights from the practitioner level serve as a valuable resource for other schools, districts, and states as they implement the CCSS.

Google Hangout on Air Webinar


Personalized Professional Learning in a Digital Age

On January 8, 2015 the Alliance for Excellent Education hosted a webinar in its Project 24 leadership series. For years, the top-down, one-size-fits-all approach to professional learning has been prevalent in schools across the nation. Educators are often brought into large group rooms and a “sit and get” model of professional learning is utilized. Quite often, educators are left feeling frustrated and districts wonder why there is little evidence of impact in a traditional model. In recent years, the concept of educators being empowered to take charge of their own professional learning has gained momentum.
