Lessons in Learning with Kim Beardon.

Kim Bearson, co-founder of Ron Clark Academy shares new lessons for virtual teaching with the Post-it® App to connect with students learning at home.

  • Innovation.

    A wise man once said that the stone age didn’t end because they ran out of stone. That’s true. Man evolved. Through education, learning, adapting and innovating they took the world from one of stone to the digital age we live in today. Innovation has touched every part of our lives. So, why would the way we teach students be any different?  

    Innovation encourages teachers and students to explore, research, and use all the tools at their disposal to uncover something new. It’s a new way to look at and solve problems.

    Located directly at the cross-section of innovation and education sits the Ron Clark Academy. A non-profit middle school located in Southeast Atlanta that was built around on the mission of delivering the highest quality educational experience through engaging methods. Since 2007, the Ron Clark Academy has received highly-acclaimed national and international recognition for their success in creating a dynamic learning environment. In fact, more than 80,000 educators have participated in the RCA Experience to learn better ways to engage their students, promote academic rigor, and create a climate and culture that promotes success.

    As one of the co-founders of the Ron Clark Academy and a self-proclaimed Post-it® Brand Queen, Kim Beardon knows a thing or two about mixing innovation and education both in and out of the classroom. Here, she shows us some innovative, new, fun educational activities that you can use for your students using the Post-it® App and Post-it® Super Sticky Notes
