Thanks +Edutopia for consistently being on my radar for sharing great content! I've lectured/written extensively about the power of music in education but don't take my word for it :) Read this, via The Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2015/07/21/the-science-of-why-music-improves-our-memory-and-verbal-intelligence/?tid=HP_posteverything

Learning beyond the classroom.
When you offer students extra credit to take field trips without you, you give them agency to bring related classroom content alive in new ways.

"A deeper level of professional learning is needed for the schools of the future to emerge at a pace that kids and communities deserve."
With more focus on retaining information, reflecting, and redistributing new knowledge, teachers can foster the deeper level of professional learning that kids and communities deserve.

I like the idea of "Share a conversation. Retaining information is a personal endeavor, but at times it must include others to truly maximize the knowledge gained."  

I am more likely to talk about a conference I attended than I am to read notes.

"If we see our students as unique, resourceful, intelligent, imaginative, and able, we become more willing to promote student-centered learning by providing opportunities to use their gifts, talents, and abilities, and develop their voices that will allow them to flourish today and in the future." Well stated!

Thank you for connecting with us on G+ and joining the movement for change in education. We like to be a part of the conversation and we actively monitor this page. We try to respond to every person, so do let us know by emailing community@edutopia.org or messaging our page if your comment goes unanswered. We also monitor comments, and those that do not fall within our commenting policy will be deleted. You can see the policy we follow here: http://www.edutopia.org/community-guidelines.

Company Overview
Edutopia is produced by The George Lucas Educational Foundation, a private operating foundation dedicated to improving the K-12 learning process by documenting, disseminating, and advocating for innovative, replicable, and evidence-based strategies that prepare students to thrive in their future education, careers, and adult lives. As one of the world's leading sources for change-makers in education, The George Lucas Educational Foundation spreads the word about ideal, interactive learning environments and enables others to adapt these successes locally. Edutopia.org contains a deep archive of continually updated best practices, from classroom tips to recommendations for district-wide change.  

Description
Our vision is of a new world of learning, a place where students and parents, teachers and administrators, policy makers and the people they serve are all empowered to change education for the better; a place where schools provide rigorous project-based learning, social-emotional learning, and access to new technology; a place where innovation is the rule, not the exception; a place where students become lifelong learners and develop 21st-century skills, especially in information literacy so they can:
  • find, assess, and use information effectively and creatively
  • work cooperatively and constructively with others 
  • use their strengths and talents to become empowered, productive citizens in our democratic society and the world at large.
It’s a place of inspiration and aspiration based on the urgent belief that improving education is the key to the survival of the human race. We call this place Edutopia, and we provide not just the vision for this new world of learning but the real-world information and community connections to make it a reality.

General Information
Edutopia’s audience includes educators, parents, school board members, university faculty, community-based organizations, and the business community -- all groups working to create better schools for the twenty-first century.
