Dear Edutopia Friend,

Things are beginning to change — everywhere.

I just got back from the inauguration in Washington, DC, and I couldn’t be more excited about the moment we’re in right now. Let me tell you, the groundswell of support for changing what’s possible in teaching and learning is being heard loud and clear.

Here at Edutopia, we’re continuing to redefine learning and have just unveiled some of our most innovative and practical resources yet at Edutopia.org. It’s part of our continuing A New Day for Learning   initiative that provides a deeper look into after-school and full-time-learning programs. I’d like to personally lead you through this new material during our webinar on Thursday, February 12.

Support for this coverage was provided in part by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation. As a special guest, please provide the following code when registering: ECMPCSM

I’m thrilled to host this engaging session where educators will connect with leading experts to talk about how to foster learning opportunities during, and beyond, the school day by creating programs that inspire and excite students.

I’ll be joined by Hillary Salmons and Karen Dvornich — both of whom contributed to our new series of in-depth, multimedia stories packaged together as A New Day for Learning at CLICK HERE Together, we’ll take you on a guided tour through these resources.

Salmons is executive director of the Providence After School Alliance   (PASA), a leader of and model for cities across the nation in developing citywide campus centers that keep students in stimulating, safe environments with caring adults during the after-school hours. Dvornich coordinates NatureMapping , a program that provides workshops and resources to help students collect and analyze scientific field data, inspiring young scientists through class projects and field trips.

I hope you’ll join us for our first webinar of 2009 — RSVP today.   You’ll walk away from the webinar with access to lesson plans, best practices, and tips you can implement in your school, your school district, or your community — and you’ll get them straight from the experts.

Everything we do here at Edutopia comes back to providing you with practical resources and innovative ideas that help you bring the best to your classroom, your school, or your school district. That’s why I hope to connect with you during our upcoming webinar exploring model programs that engage students in the array of learning opportunities inside, and outside of, the classroom.

Thanks for reading, and thanks for believing in, Edutopia.
