The Transformation Solution

I was interested to see an announcement from the Canadian government that they were initiating a transformation contest.[1] Applicants are to submit a practical proposal to transform society by creating a significant positive change.  Perhaps TeachBeyond should enter.

Part of that “Christian perspective” on transformational education is teaching from a biblical worldview and helping our students develop such a worldview. […]

Culture of Learning: Asking Questions to Foster Innovation

More than ever before, schools are facing a time where they must focus on fostering habits of mind that go beyond just learning content to teaching students how to think. By providing opportunities and routines for students to develop these habits of mind, schools prepare them to be problem solvers and innovators. As students become […]
