This fall about 120 schools are expected to introduce a free, student-directed learning system developed by Facebook and a nonprofit charter-school group based in California’s Silicon Valley. The Summit Personalized Learning Platform puts students in charge of choosing and managing their projects. The software gives students a full view of their academic responsibilities for the year in each class and breaks down each responsibility into customizable lesson modules they can tackle at their own pace.
Girls Thinking Global (GTG) is an online professional learning community for educators to connect and converse about ways to support and nurture leadership qualities in adolescent girls and young women around the world.
