Join us & thousands of educators at the Celebration of Teaching & Learning
By Anne on March 9th, 2012
Teachers! We’re looking forward to spending two days with you. We’ll be joining the more than 10,000 educators gathering from across the country next week for the Celebration of Teaching & Learning here in New York City. Experts with teachers will address topics in education from family engagement to educational technology, from literacy to STEM, from arts to global awareness and more. It’s actually pretty hard to find a topic that ISN’T being talked about.
We already gave you a sneak peek at some of the ways Scholastic is participating – Henry Winkler will bring his new book Ghost Buddy to life and Dr. David Dockterman is sharing his expertise during a panel on the potential for gaming to impact learning – but there’s more. We’ll also be sharing the results of our latest survey of America’s teachers: Primary Sources 2012. As education remains a hot topic and arguable one of the most crucial today, it is imperative that we ensure the voice of teachers is heard. The results of this survey paint a portrait of what is happening in today’s classroom and we’re eager to share it with you.
One new piece of data that we learned from teachers is that “family involvement and support” is the most important factor in raising student achievement. We’ll be tackling this topic in an additional session on Saturday through a panel of experts addressing the engagement of parents and families of at-risk populations.
Education gatherings like this can be both reenergizing and inspiring. Regardless of which sessions you are able to attend, or can follow on Twitter #CTL2012, we hope you’ll join the conversation and keep sharing your views on what’s important in education today.
