The Future is NOW - Arkansas Educators Embracing Technology
In this issue of the Arkansas Educator, we look at the many ways technology is being used to improve student success. We also spoke with the Arkansas Department of Education about micro-credentials, a new digital way for educators to demonstrate skills and qualify for professional development. Be sure to check out the profile of Fayetteville Education Association's former president Trevor Cooperescue, where he discusses the local's incredible growth over the last few years, and offers tips to spread the success to your part of the state. We also visited Parson Hills Elementary in the Springdale School District to speak with Juan Ruiz, an Education Support Professional who says helping others is his favorite thing to do. Read all of this, and much more right now at this link!
Welcome to the Redesigned Arkansas Educator
We are excited to share the newly revived Arkansas Educator! We see the transformative work AEA members are doing every day, but it’s important for those stories to be shared across the state. AEA's staff stands ready to walk alongside members to ensure you are empowered to be at your best for your students, your profession and for each other. We want the Educator to be a platform to highlight the incredible things AEA members do in classrooms, school buildings and communities every day. This is your magazine. It will also serve as a space to learn about new trends in public education, share ideas, learn about what’s happening with local associations across Arkansas and to stay up-to-date with political and policy changes impacting public education.
