A new website devoted to promoting the need for innovation in education has recently launched. Iowa Future was developed in collaboration with five state education groups (Iowa Association of School Boards, Iowa Department of Education, Iowa State Education Association and School Administrators of Iowa) along with Iowa’s AEAs. The work is supported by a grant from The Wallace Foundation and content writing and collection has been going on for several months.
In addition to promoting the need for innovation, the site is a forum for sharing ideas from across the state and nation, and highlights work underway to prepare students for the future. It will provide videos, discussion guides, presentation templates, testimonials, links to resources and more. In addition visitors can offer fresh ideas of their own.
