We know there is much room for improvement in our current K-12 educational system and after this discussion there is a sense of hopefulness that if students, educators, parents, innovators and government collaborate and stay engaged in its development, we can see positive change in our youth and their preparedness for the future. It takes a whole community to nurture a child.
We look forward to continuing this discussion with you in the series of The Future of Education meetups with a focus on Technology and Education. In the meantime, feel free to join the conversations with a comment here in our Facebook page /Neurouplift, Twitter @neurouplift or Meetup group /thefutureoflearning. If meetup locations are too far to travel to, Start a chapter in your city. Contact group organizer. Folks who should consider: parents, teachers, students, local business leaders, members of local chambers, parent organizations, student organizations, school trustees, higher education representatives, student council members, counselors, principals, accountability and curriculum personnel, nurses, community organizations in your area, etc.
The main goals are to: • Encourage collaboration among existing community resources • Support the creation of “best practice” programs and services • Engage in outreach and media campaigns • Research and provide culturally competent educational materials
