As this month, and with it our focus on technology, draws to a close, I wanted to make sure that I shared a couple of the exciting new ways Character.org is using technology to enhance our resources and our ability to connect with educators across the world.
A Brand New Webstore
We’re now offering even more products, including our first ever digital download available! Browse through our collection of Schools of Character Magazines, White Papers and much more. Now featuring books by character education expert, Hal Urban.
At the 2015 National Forum on Character Education, Character.org met with a group of conference exhibitors to discuss how we can collaborate throughout the year. With all of the technology that is available, there’s no reason we should have to limit our connection with all of these great partners, to once a year at the Forum. And thus, the Character Consortium was born.
The Character Consortium provides organizations that are passionate about character education and school climate with a wide variety of resources including quarterly group strategy sessions, online trainings, the opportunity to list items items in our previously mentioned webstore and more! If you or your organization is interested in joining the Character Consortium you can learn more here!
More and more schools are using social media to develop closer relationships with parents, colleagues and (in carefully monitored situations) even students. Seeing the success that others have had using social media as a networking and information planning platform, we decided to join the bandwagon.
The Character.org Facebook group is a place where members can connect, ask questions, learn about best practices directly from our experts, and stay up to date on our latest news. If you want to join in the conversation, become a member today!
