Emily Alexander: Building true diversity in school

“I think we’re lucky to have a community that believes that diverse, true diversity is not just a moral good, but an educational imperative. There’s a lot of research now about how diverse groups make better decisions and companies. It’s now that research is now starting to include educational settings.”

The SMART Learning Suite Online allows teachers to create, store, and deliver lessons from anywhere – no SMART Board required – and your students can access and engage with your content from any web browser on any device. And it connects with tools you already use like Google Classroom and Microsoft Teams.

The research-backed EdTeach Assessment Tool will help Ruckus Makers discover their strengths and best area of focus across 5 different modules, including leadership and remote learning. You’ll get a personalized report that shows where you stack up against other leaders, and maps some areas of focus that will have the greatest impact for you.
