Lisa: It’s wonderful to connect, Spiffy, and to share what we do at World Education Connection (WEC). Even though you are an interplanetary journalist from a different planet, I believe all of us share the desire to feel connected and accepted as our true selves. This can be very hard because we fear being judged or not fitting in when we expose who we truly are—inside and out. Conversely, we often make quick judgments about people before we know anything about them. WEC encourages children to lean in and explore areas where they can find connection with themselves, their local peers, and global teammates.
Maxwell: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Did you know that K-12 schools lack a standardized process for lesson planning, as most of them use email and Google Docs to get this job done? This leads to time wasting, lack of oversight (which causes instructional inequity), and lack of actionable data. Integrate School works towards solving these problems.
