EdTech 10: Recentering for Students

As we reel from the inspiring launch of Preparing Leaders for Deeper Learning, Memorial Day Weekend, and having the last laugh at Deflategate, this week has been one for recentering.

With Team Getting Smart taking a step back to huddle for our annual retreat, our staff have been busy freshening up on our public speaking skills, leadership techniques, and how we function as a mission-driven organization.

This week’s news is about stepping back, reassessing, and reorganizing with results from reports, renewing funding for schools and libraries, and award recipients to boot.
