Lembke_Rose_FBlive

On May 31, 2019 Dr. Erica Lembke and Dr. Chad Rose of the University of Missouri Department of Special Education gave a Facebook Live presentation in which they discussed new online courses available through eMINTS eLearning for Educators.

Screening for Dyslexia and Other Related Disorders, developed by Erica Lembke, Ph.D. and Jennifer Kuehnle, M.Ed., is a two-hour, self-paced course providing information that includes identification characteristics of a child with dyslexia and the impact it can have on the academic and social life. The course includes information about the new Missouri Law 635 and how to meet the requirements for screening and professional development which went into effect the 2018-2019 school year. This course is available now for only $30.

Awareness and Prevention of School-Based Bullying, developed by Chad A. Rose, is a two-hour, self-paced course which addresses many of the myths around bullying perpetuated by the media and provides teachers with the tools they need to understand and prevent bullying in their schools. This course will be available July 1.

Moneyball for Government Announces eMINTS Leader as New Non-Profit All-Star

MoneyballforGovMoneyball for Government, a project of Results for America dedicated to encouraging governments at all levels to increase their use of data and evidence when investing limited taxpayer dollars, announced today the addition of 33 non-profit leaders to its Moneyball for Government All-Star team, including eMINTS Executive Director Lorie Kaplan. The 33 leaders announced today represent CEOs, presidents, executives and founders of leading national non-profit organizations committed to improving lives using data-driven, evidence-based solutions. See full press release, click here.

About Moneyball for Government

Just as Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland A’s, famously transformed baseball by ignoring the scouts and instead used data to build championship contending teams despite limited budgets, Moneyball for Government has the potential to transform the way government at all levels makes important funding decisions. Instead of relying on gut instinct, or worse, special interests, policymakers must use data and evidence when deciding how best to invest increasingly limited taxpayer dollars.

About Results for America

Results for America (RFA) improves outcomes for young people, their families, and communities by shifting public resources toward evidence-based, results-driven solutions.

RFA is working to achieve this goal by building a strong bipartisan “Invest in What Works” coalition; developing and advancing the next generation of evidence-based, results-driven practices, policies, and programs; and supporting leaders at all levels of government to invest in what works.

In November, 2014, Results for America published Moneyball for Government, the best-selling book authored by a bipartisan group of nationally-recognized experts to help ensure that budget, policy, and management decisions by governments at all levels are informed by the best possible data and evidence about what works.

White Paper: Connections and Convergence: eMINTS and Personalized Learning

We are excited to share our recent white paper titled Connections and Convergence: eMINTS and Personalized Learning. This paper describes and contrasts the two primary paths to designing personalized learning environments in U.S. K-12 schools: 1) the technology-driven path, and 2) the pedagogical- and student-driven path. The paper explains how Springdale Public Schools and eMINTS National Center in the University of Missouri (MU) College of Education approach the pedagogical- and student-driven path.
