Pearson Foundation Launches Inspirational New Site: Five Things I’ve Learned

Our friends at the Pearson Foundation have just launched Five Things I’ve Learned, a new website that shares the personal insights of education leaders who are working to improve learning for students, both inside and outside the classroom.

The site launched this week with 54 educators, thought leaders, and innovators who are shaping the face of education today, including the Cooney Center’s Executive DirectorMichael H. Levine, who reminds us that relationships matter; that families matter; and that it’s important for all youth to think globally and master digital competencies in order to succeed in the 21st century. Read all about his “five things” here — and spread the word!

Five Things I’ve Learned aims to add new voices weekly, “with the goal of extending the dialogue around what works for young people, teachers and the school systems and community organizations that support them.” Take a few minutes to browse the site—its elegant navigation allows users to browse by contributors, or by insights such as “family and community,” “global and local learning,” and “policy and practice,” just to name a few. We think you will enjoy browsing these thoughtful notes as much as we have.
