The goal of Sharing Expertise is to be a vital destination that is rich in career and education information, a place where educators can share experiences, concerns, and successes.
Palm Beach Gardens, FL (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
Learning Sciences Marzano Center, the curators of Sharing Expertise, has today publicly committed their online property to focusing on two of the most discussed topics among educators today: teacher evaluation and student achievement.
“The goal of Sharing Expertise is to be a vital destination that is rich in career and education information, a place where educators can share experiences, concerns, and successes,” explains Marzano Center CEO Michael Toth. “That’s why we have decided to focus on the topics on most educators minds’ today. These are issues that present deep challenges for administrators, and can sometimes be seen as a threat for classroom educators. Since these issues truly should offer growth and improvement opportunities for everyone involved, we’ve designed this forum to facilitate teacher growth and foster a common language of instruction, not simply within schools and school districts, but nationwide.”
An impressive line-up of education experts can be found on the Sharing Expertise site, regularly posting their thoughts on topics such as education reform, classroom practice, teacher and principal evaluation systems, and district-level implementation. “Educators are finding an impressive array of information on the site,” adds Toth, “information they are turning around and using in their schools and districts to improve themselves, their organizations and, most importantly, the achievement levels of their students.”
