The STEM Academy Classroom Tour
The BERC Group has partnered with The STEM Academy to provide instructional training around the STEM curriculum. To kick it off, The BERC Group filmed a number of classrooms throughout the United States that have already implemented The STEM Academy's curriculum and conducted interviews about it with the teachers and administrators of those classrooms. This is a brief compilation video highlighting those classrooms and interviews.

It came to our attention last week that there was an issue with the Lesson Planner timing out during long sessions and, in some cases, losing data. This was our highest priority issue as soon as we learned of it. We immediately put our development team solely on this issue and are happy to report that a fix was released by the end of last week. Please let us know if you experiencing difficulty with timing out and/or data retention.

Over the last 14 years, The BERC Group has studied educational reform both nationally and right here in Washington. The Avoiding Reform Fatigue Workshop is an opportunity for your school teams to learn how current educational initiatives fit together so all staff can begin the school year with a clear vision, personal inspiration, and a readiness to implement change.
In the coming months we will be providing workshops at host schools throughout the state for anyone who wants to learn more about the current Washington educational landscape and how to avoid reform fatigue. We believe it will be a refreshing lens through which to view the many different initiatives currently underway. By keeping the costs low, and the workshops to a single day, we hope to have as many people as possible attend. This promises to be a GREAT way to start your school year.
