On Thinking: A Blue School Teaching Innovation Conference

On November 9th, Drs. Rhonda Bondie and Akane Zusho spoke at the On Thinking: A Blue School Teaching Innovation Conference at the Blue School in New York. The conference addressed topics related to thinking, learning, and structure.

What if school was truly a place for thinking? This idea may sound obvious, but organizing classrooms around types and amounts of thinking has profound implications for learning. This practice could begin to reshape education.

Dr. McCray Among Noodle’s 67 Influential Educators of 2015

Dr. Carlos McCray, Associate Professor in our Educational Leadership, Administration, and Policy programs, was¬†recently listed among Noodle’s 67 Influential Educators of 2015.

Demographically, the United States is transitioning to a majority-minority country (in which the number of Latino, African-American, and Asian individuals is becoming greater than that of non-Hispanic whites), and by some accounts, the entering kindergarten class of 2015 already is majority-minority. At the same time, education degrees yearly are overwhelmingly awarded to whites, and to women. McCray’s research delves deeply into race, class, and gender dynamics between educators and students, and explores how embracing cultural diversity and pluralism can improve outcomes. Read more.

The list is comprised of Ed Tech, Education Analysis, Higher Education, and K-12 educators who are innovating the education landscape. Congratulations, Dr. McCray!
