Kanwal Singh reviews Justin Reich's latest book for Science Magazine:
"As the pandemic forces so many school systems and learning institutions to move online, the desire to educate students well using online tools and platforms is more pressing than ever. But as Justin Reich illustrates in his new book, Failure to Disrupt, there are no easy solutions or one-size-fits-all tools that can aid in this transition, and many recent technologies that were expected to radically change schooling have instead been used in ways that perpetuate existing systems and their attendant inequalities."

To more deeply understand the practice and professional experiences of educators during the 2020 extended school closures, we interviewed 40 teachers from across the country in public, charter, and private schools, at different grade levels, and in different subject areas.
We analyze the state education agency policy guidance concerning remote learning published by all 50 U.S. states by the end of March 2020.
The mission is to create and share high quality resources to facilitate digital and non-digital learning for K-12 and lifelong learners. By providing science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) based instructional materials and an open forum for users to share insights, we aim to inspire a diverse global community of educators, students, and parents to find innovative solutions to the challenges of learning at a distance
MIT’s Teaching Systems Lab (TSL), with support from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, is excited to announce the recipients for the 2018-2019 Teaching and Learning Innovation Grant (TLIG).
Thanks to a National Science Foundation grant, TSL will collaborate with Maker Ed to improve school-based assessment practices in maker-centered education.
This year’s recipients tackle a range of innovations in education from using the Unhangout Platform to support teachers’ professional development to using artificial intelligence to make students’ mathematical problem solving visible to the teachers.
