Colorado Legacy Foundation Debuts ELO Video to 900 Education, Business, Government, and Nonprofit Leaders
DENVER, CO — At yesterday’s 2012 Legacy Luncheon, the Colorado Legacy Foundation (CLF) debuted its Expanded Learning Opportunities video to a crowd of nearly 900 education, business, government, and nonprofit leaders from throughout Colorado and around the nation. The video highlighted the work of CLF’s Expanded Learning Opportunities Initiative, which challenges current education assumptions and works to find innovative ways to better support educators and students.
“Every person who cares about the future of education needs to watch this video,” said Elaine Gantz Berman, member of the State Board of Education and Chair of the Expanded Learning Opportunities Commission. “If we are going to have a globally competitive public education system, we need to create an education delivery platform that is relevant, customized, and one that helps ignite a passion for learning in every student in Colorado. This video is the start of that critical conversation.”
CLF’s Expanded Learning Opportunities Initiative seeks ways to look beyond the walls, clocks, and calendars that define the traditional classroom experience and to help educators and students create learning experiences in ways that ignite students’ passions and develop them into life-long learners.
