Funding Challenges and Action Steps for Policymakers to Support Education Transformation
States and school districts around the nation are advancing policies to support the shift toward student-centered, personalized, competency-based education. iNACOL is frequently asked to offer guidance on how to fund this transformation, and to that end, we released State Funding Strategies to Support Education Innovation. The issue brief presented several case studies showing the diverse approaches states have used to resource their innovation initiatives. Policymakers can begin their resourcing approach by examining their state’s funding formulas and how they might pose barriers and challenges that limit the flexibility needed for innovative learning models.

The Role of School Libraries in School Transformation
In a learner-centered paradigm, libraries serve an important purpose, for one of their main commitments is to cultivate self-interest in learners and equip them with the skills to independently evaluate sources of information. Materials that libraries supply for students – books, computers, audiobooks, microfiche, etc. – are all just mediums for the transfer of information. Librarians act not only as guides to assist students in finding materials that are suitable to their academic goals and interests, but also as an arbiter of the sources to which students are given access.

Innovators Worth Watching: Bootcamps

As I say each week…  From the neo-liberal, educational privatizers masquerading as an academic body – so the term research here is used VERY loosely (as none of this actually represents methodologically sound, reliable, valid, or empirical research in any real way).
