That the digital revolution evolves at a rapid pace and that technology has become so subject-specific means universities cannot address these shifts and create a standard curriculum. As a result, educators have become more resourceful and ingenious in their teaching, professors say.

For two UW College of Education researchers, a huge new federal Head Start grant means the creation of a new center and years of hard work ahead — but most of all, it means helping America’s youngest learners prepare for and succeed in school. The UW will take the lead among seven institutions in a new five-year, $40 million national Head Start grant. The money will be used to create the new National Center on Quality Teaching and Learning, based at the UW. The center’s five-year mission, starting January 2011, will be to discover and share best practices in teaching and learning for Head Start teachers and others.
