Since 2016, MSA has been looking far and wide for young companies that offer products or services that our members may not be aware of. In most cases, these companies are a few years out from start-up stages. In other instances, the companies have been in existence for longer, but have produced a new offering that we think is worthy of bringing to your attention. Each offering is first vetted by MSA members as to whether it is practical, effective, and economical for our schools.  And each product or service is offered to MSA members with a special benefit available only to members. Keep returning to this page. The number and types offerings will grow. They may not be for all schools in every instance, but MSA believes they are worth your strong consideration.

Message from the Fall Technical Assistance & Training Conference:

We would love to talk with you about your STEM education goals. We know that putting together a STEM program is challenging and it can take a lot of time. We’ve created a turnkey STEM learning environment, called a SmartLab, where everything from the furniture and technology to curriculum, assessment and professional development work together to support hands-on, minds-on learning for all students of all abilities and interests. We plan out every detail so you can focus on what you do best – educating students. Recently Magnet Schools of Aldine ISD in Houston, TX and PS 201Q – Discovery School for Inquiry and Research in Queens, NY have put in SmartLabs and the students and the teachers are loving what they see. Here’s a video of what learning looks like in a SmartLab. Visit creativelearningsystems.com to talk with a STEM consultant today.

METEOR EDUCATION Connecting the Dots – from High Impact Learning Environments to High Impact Classroom Strategies to tools that facilitate learning.

 


Meteor Education Connecting the Dots – from High Impact Learning Environments to High Impact Classroom Strategies to tools that facilitate learning.

The research tells us collaborative teaching and learning can increase student learning by 20%. In spite of sweeping education reform, only 10% of schools are “future ready” and 70% of change initiatives fail. As districts and schools consider strategies to modernize their learning environments and teaching strategies,  what are best practices supported by research that have the most impact on student achievement and teacher engagement? Join us for a brief discussion and synopsis of how Meteor can help.


Message from the Fall Technical Assistance & Training Conference:

In my shark tank presentation at the fall conference, I highlighted some of the research from Humanizing the Education Machine. Below is a link to a short session by Bill Latham, co-author of the book doing a short session on the research and case for sweeping education reform.

Please reach out if you are interested in attending or hosting an executive briefing on the topics above, would like a facilitated webinar session with one of the consultants or authors who are Meteor’s thought leaders, or are interested in discussing possible instructional and environmental designs for your classrooms.
