Hello CUE Family, Members, and Friends,Pam GHernandez

Now more than ever, thank you for answering the call to service as educators!

There is no baseline for the work you are doing right now. From one perspective, this can bring some angst as well look at how to measure success. From another perspective, this is an extraordinary time to be a part of developing real baseline data for online learning and adapting the FAIL acronym to First Attempt Iterate and Lead.

You are living the opportunity to do what has never been done before – intentionally designing and sharing ways to use technology to connect with students, parents, community, and each other. Your generosity in sharing through social media, tagging #WeAreCUE, working as CUE Lead Learners, serving at the local level, and connecting with your local affiliate are the strength upon which we are built.

Warmest Regards,
Pam Gildersleeve-Hernandez
Executive Director, CUE

CUE Member Spotlight

Create a Community for Deep Discovery with Mary Hendra

“For years, CUE has been a source for feeding and building that spirit of innovation and play in me and with the team members and teachers I serve. The shift in recent years for CUE to center issues of equity and access when we talk about tech in education has made my connection to CUE even stronger since that is a vital part of me as both teacher and community creator.”
