Conversations with OST Leaders
We will be posting a series of videotaped interviews with educational and OST leaders. You can view the first three of these now on our Video page of our website. The first two are insightful and yet brief conversations with Dr. Deborah Vandell (UCI) on the LIAS principles. The third video features a selection of numerous leaders on the LIAS learning principles they find most important.
How Kids Learn II Conference
The How Kids Learn II conference videos are now posted on our YouTube channel. There are two remaining presentations to post. In particular, we recommend you view the presentations by Pedro Noguera (NYU), Lynn Johnson (Glitter & Razz), Jodi Grant (Afterschool Alliance), and Robert Granger (WT Grant Foundation).
Temescal Associates has developed an Out of School Time Glossary of important terms from an evolving OST movement. It can be downloaded for free here. We invite program leaders to send us new terms and definitions making this a living document.
The LIAS project is piloting the awarding of digital badges to LIAS youth and adult ambassadors and exemplar afterschool and summer programs. This project is a partnership between Temescal Associates, Public Profit, and Youtopia. It will be expanded to include badges for program participants, program staff, and exemplar programs and providers.
