PowerUp Rhode Island!

Dr. Judith Zorfass of the PowerUp WHAT WORKS team introduced the newly redesigned PowerUp WHAT WORKS website at the Cut to the Core CCSS Networking Conference in Rhode Island on October 26, 2013.  Over 50 educators learned how PowerUp links evidence-based practices, technology, and Universal Design for Learning to improve outcomes for all students, including those who struggle and those with disabilities. Here’s a sample of what conference participants said about PowerUp WHAT WORKS: “I can’t wait to get started. This will help ALL our students!  Thank you for sharing Website looks very useful and I will certainly use it.” “I will use this immediately!!!” “LOVED IT!” “Let’s get the word out!!  It will help in my district and across the state!!” “The session was very information al and will be very useful to use in the classroom.  I will definitely share everything I learned with my principal and my colleagues.” Several participants are planning follow-up webinars for their schools and districts with Dr. Zorfass and the PowerUp staff.   Would you like us to design a PowerUp webinar for you school?  Perhaps you would like us present at your upcoming conference?  Contact us at PowerUp@air.org to discuss virtual or in-person options.
