The Early Learning Alliance Network will be hosting a day long event with two nationally recognized speakers.
Session 1 will focus on young children and designing learning experiences that are founded on play, curiosity, purposeful assessment, and the development of self-direction.
Session 2 will focus on early childhood as a foundation for designing a portrait of a graduate. Participants will walk away with an understanding of how other states and districts have used backward and forward design with a child-centered focus to advance learning experiences and outcomes for all children.
What others are saying...

There are lessons for every stakeholder in these pages, creating a must read for superintendents, principals, teachers, professors, advocates, and even politicians. We want to improve experiences for our students? Timeless Learning sets the stage for taking action... "

Pamela Moran and Ira Socol are best selling authors and experienced educators and educational leaders. The duo is a sought after professional development opportunity for forward thinking communities working to articulate “what learning is” and how those learning experiences are designed. Further, Moran and Socol provide training on how early childhood tenants (curiosity, play, etc.) can be continually nurtured throughout preK-12 education. Pam’s work in the development of a portrait of a graduate in the State of Virginia provides a unique perspective on how schools in our community can use early childhood as a foundation for thinking about the education and learning experiences all children deserve from preK through grade 12.
