I recently returned from the NAREA Summer Conference held in Portland.  While I was there, I was fortunate to visit the Opal School  which is located in the Portland Children’s Museum.  It is a  beautiful school which focuses on Mentorship, Language, and Materials.  They are really doing incredible work there.  Be sure to check out their website.  I just found out that  they are offering Opal School Online beginning in October. Read the introduction to the Online Program below and let me know what you think.

“For the first time, we will make available online a collection of articles, videos, suggestions for reflections, and hosted interaction amongst participants. These weekly learning modules will cover a variety of topics for self-study, supporting educators around the world to engage in conversation about playful inquiry and creating environments for learning that honor the creative capacities of our youngest citizens.”
