Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 04, 2014
Educators now have a new digital resource for timely, valuable information on the latest educational practices and current topics. AdvancED, the world leader in providing improvement and accreditation services to education providers, announces the launch of The Source, an online knowledge resource that will include opinions and best practices in education from recognized authors and educational leaders.
“For more than five years, we have been publishing the AdvancED Source twice a year for educational leaders around the world,” said Mark A. Elgart, Ed.D., president and CEO of AdvancED. “Now we have moved our flagship publication online so that more educators can benefit from its valuable content in a readable, sharable and compelling format.”
In addition to the feature articles, The Source also will connect viewers to videos, case studies and opinion pieces. Additionally, readers will be able to search for topics under pre-populated categories.
The inaugural issue of The Source focuses on Today’s Learning Paradigm and features:
- Cultural anthropologist Mimi Ito who explores connected learning that allows young people to link personal interest or passion to learning
- Author Gary Marx who examines the realities facing educators and a refreshed paradigm for today’s learning
- Education Strategist Monica Martinez who suggests a framework for educators to prepare all students for the world today
- And more…
“Educators of all types will benefit from the rich content and connections provided through The Source,” said Elgart. “We hope they will share this resource with their students as well and use it to spark a dialogue about their perspective on learning.”
