In June the REVERE Awards will celebrate 50 years of recognizing high quality educational resources. While the program may have started out honoring classroom magazines, it has adapted to changes in the learning environment, adding competitions to reflect new education policies, continuing research into how children learn, and, of course, advances in technology. Although the categories may be different, the goal of the awards remains the same: identifying quality, effective learning tools that help teachers teach and students learn. Today, REVERE Awards committee members Maureen Costello (Teaching Tolerance) and Eric Hamilton (American Museum of Natural History) as well as Linda Swank, Program Manager for the AAP PreK-12 Learning Group, joined Larry Jacobs on Education Talk Radio to discuss the REVERE Awards, the rigorous judging process involving both educators and publishing professionals, and how both the entrants and their products represent the broad learning resource developer community.
Listen to the conversation and find out how the REVERE Awards reflect the movement towards anytime, anywhere learning.
