Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) November 17, 2015
To help schools prepare students for their future, Clarity Innovations has authored a new learning guide book for K-12 educators entitled, “Get Active: Reimagining Learning Spaces for Student Success” (ISBN: 978-1-56484-365-4) and published by the International Society of Technology in Education (“ISTE”).
Developed in collaboration with Intel Education and Steelcase Education, the book takes readers on a tour of active learning spaces to discover that these are places where students develop the skills necessary for the future — collaboration, creativity and critical thinking — and where they become actively involved in the learning process.
The guide describes in actionable detail how to design schools and classrooms to support learning in a connected, digital world. From classroom redesigns to schoolwide renovation projects and new building construction, readers can explore the many ways that active learning spaces can improve the learning experience.
“What better way to help accomplish our mission than to write a guide that speaks directly to the needs of the classroom teacher looking to prepare students for the future? To me, it’s imperative that we support educators with the resources necessary to accomplish this,” explains R. Thor Prichard, CEO of Clarity Innovations.
Get Active was written by a team of Clarity Innovation’s experienced educators, authors and multimedia designers:
- Dale Basye is an award-winning writer with more than 20 years of experience developing multimedia experiences for children.
- Peggy Grant taught junior high English and reading before earning her doctorate in literacy education. Basye and Grant are co-authors of the ISTE book, Personalized Learning: A Guide for Engaging Students with Technology.
