30 Days to Diversity

The humanization of diversity and inclusion is a tough topic, but it’s important. This 30-day guide will help you get started by asking yourself some questions that may be on your mind when it comes to this complex issue like “What does humanizing really mean?” or even more challengingly  “Who are we without our differences?”. You’ll also learn how practicing empathy can go hand in glove with valuing someone else’s perspective so they feel seen as an individual rather than just another member within groups whose membership has been reduced down over time through natural selection processes which sometimes includes violence against those individuals who don’t fit into society expectations anymore.

Meet Gary Brackett

Gary Brackett was born with a love of competition and a will to win. By all accounts, he has already lived a life that most athletes (and even non-athletes) only dream of. If you know anything about football, it’s likely that you know his name. You may remember his impressive stats (he still holds the record for most individual tackles in a Super Bowl). But he is best known for his unwavering passion, unmatched energy and unrelenting work ethic that transformed this “underdog” into a Captain of a World Championship Team.   Since his “retirement” (from football), Brackett has continued tackling opportunities. After hanging up his jersey, he received his MBA from George Washington University and founded Brackett Restaurant Group.  During his time as a restaurateur, he realized the critical ingredients to success, as well as the potential pitfalls to avoid failure.  His own experience, coupled with his obsession with uncovering “hacks” and “secrets” of the world’s most successful leaders and businesses, lead him to create his own signature framework.  He uses the framework as a tool to guide his clients through actionable steps with measurable results.  His training helps clients align themselves with their vision, become crystal clear on their desired outcomes, and unlock the champions they are inside of their organizations.    Brackett has mentored and empowered thousands of small business owners and professionals to realize their value, maximize their potential, and begin to thrive in business and in life.

Guides FOR DIGITAL IMMIGRANTS TEACHERS AND SCHOOLS

In the 21st century, it has become imperative that learners at all levels of education are armed with the technological skills needed for the next stage of their life. The majority of teachers believe that technology will kick them out of their jobs. No, teachers will always be drivers of knowledge and innovation but a driver of knowledge that does not know the road will drive the learners on a wrong path. The top-rated teachers are creative and innovative, loving, caring and they have empathy towards their learners. They are masters of subject matter, they facilitate learners’ growth in the three domains of learning, cognitive, psychomotor, and affective domains through technology and other skills aforementioned. Today, there are many facets to classroom technology as concerned lesson delivery, text, video, games, simulations, and appropriate hardware and software to bring everything together. Different Learning Management systems bring part or all of this together which allows for great collaboration between the school, teachers, learners, parents, and the global education community. These platforms are either paid, free, or in-App purchases. It is not only the teachers that are creative, but the learners also do too and there must be a shift in the role of the teachers from content deliverer to the role of learning facilitator who guides the learners in the use of technology to create their learning. Classroom technology is not about the technology device(s) you have in your classroom, it is about making the most out of what is available.
