Author of "Actualized Learning," a vision for effective reform by restructuring the learning environments in our schools, so all children can realize their potential.

I have recently launched a campaign with Kickstarter to raise funding for the publication of my book, Actualized Learning. It provides a detailed blueprint for effective educational reform that could revolutionize our school system. It is a unique concept with the ultimate aim of preparing our children with the tools, skills and awareness needed in this complex, rapidly changing world. It follows a strategy that clandestinely facilitates comprehensive content learning wherein students pursue knowledge in their efforts to attain objectives. It is entirely contextualized within sectors such as health, citizenship, the marketplace, culture, and community. There are multiple levels of purpose inherent in all activities. Students progress appropriately, according to their skills and knowledge. They traverse the learning landscape via a map of discovery that reveals their own potential and avenues for realizing it. In addition, all of those undertakings are connected by overarching scenarios that address the pressing issues of our times. I ask for your support in bringing learning and student success to the forefront of dialogues about educational reform, while pushing political agendas into the background.

My name is Dino Kiveric and I teach 8th grade math at Hancock Place Middle School in St. Louis, MO! My goal is to introduce the flipped classroom and online resources to my students so that I they graduate prepared for high school and college courses. I requested a webcam, microphone and 15 scientific calculators to be able to create online videos for my students. Please visit my link to read about our school and our students. Thank you.

Hi Everyone,

Every wonder where "Caught Red-Handed" or "Mad As A Hatter" came from?

So did we.

Say What? is a fun animated series that explains the origins of common words and phrases.
Our goal is to get Say What? into English and History classrooms in the U.S, and around the world. We want to make learning fun again, and help kids think outside the text book. But first we need to produce more amazing episodes.

Thank you so much!

Please help 100 second graders see butterflies at the Pacific Science Center!
If you use the promo code ROADMAP your money will be doubled!


My Project:
We would love to take our 100 students to the Pacific Science Center to see the tropical butterfly house. Toward the end of the year, we will be studying butterflies in the classroom. Adventuring with our students in the exhibit would be a wonderful culminating activity to our science unit. It would provide a glimpse into a part of the world very unlike Seattle and Burien -- a warm, sunny place where colorful butterflies are active 365 days a year.

Upon sharing the possibility of this field trip with my students, they were overjoyed. I asked them how it would change their lives for the better. Zainab said,"Seeing the butterflies would help me learn more about their disguises and how they use camouflage." Samatar said, "The Science Center would help me understand the life cycle better." Jose said it best with, "It'd be fun! I'd get to be curious and ask questions about science." Please help foster that curiosity within our students

Thank you so much for your support!

Thank you for the opportunity to share! I had some success with Donors Choose last year during my first year teaching. Currently, I have a project going for new puzzles. My Early Childhood Special Education classroom has puzzles but most are very old, dirty, and missing many pieces. My kiddos get so sad when they get to the end of the puzzle but they can't finish it because of a piece being gone. We were supposed to be able to order some new ones, but two separate break-ins at our school have resulted in all extra money going to replace gone technology. Any little bit helps and my project is up for the INSPIRE code until July 16th! http://www.donorschoose.org/project/is-a-puzzle-still-a-puzzle-without-a...

STAR Education, a nonprofit in Los Angeles with a 27 year history of success, is bringing equity to innovative learning by producing our second annual S.T.E.A.M. Nation event this October. Our goal is to bring S.T.E.A.M. professionals and 2,000 underserved students to West LA college for a day of inspiring performances and hands-on activities.
