This year, we’re focused on improving distance learning experiences.
Building trust is essential in distance learning
Math comes alive using technology tools
Making online learning fun for young students
Building self-confidence and research skills
These teachers recently participated in MERIT20, KCI’s premier professional learning program. This research-based, educator development program helps teachers bolster their curriculum with new teaching methodologies and technology-enhanced learning activities to motivate, challenge and inspire the diverse learners and leaders of the future.
Together we can transform teaching and learning
We are partnering with school districts to integrate the approach described in these stories with their own professional development programs-however to maintain and expand we need to increase our funding base.
In Summer 2020 alone, we reached over 2000 teachers.
Your support is crucial
Only 10% of our funding comes from the Foothill-De Anza District (primarily for facilities), with another 10% from state lottery funding—the remaining 80% comes from the generous donations of people like you.
