NCTAF Launches New Website
WASHINGTON, D.C. – January 26, 2012

The National Commission on Teaching & America’s Future (NCTAF) launched a new website today, to highlight the organization’s high-quality research, projects and partnerships. In addition, NCTAF’s blogis updated frequently with news, commentaries, and analysis of current trends in education.

“For more than fifteen years, NCTAF has been a leader in the movement to ensure that all students have access to high quality teaching in schools organized for success. Our new branding signals that we are reenergized in our commitment to this vision, and will use all the tools we can to achieve this goal,” says NCTAF President, Tom Carroll. “We invite you to join us in a collaborative effort to reinvent teaching to create the schools our students need.”

The new interactive website will feature short videos highlighting how NCTAF’s 15 STEM Learning Studios bring teachers across the curriculum together with STEM industry professionals to design hands on projects for students. In addition, the site will highlight recent awards from Ashoka Changemakers and 100Kin10, and the wide-ranging ways in which NCTAF’s teacher education partners are using online communities and mobile devices to encourage collaboration that closes the preparation-practice gap.

The new website will provide a platform for featuring best practices in collaborative teaching strategies and educator development initiatives around the country and will mean greater visibility for NCTAF’s own research and analyses.
