About this grant

This grant will support the George Lucas Educational Foundation in its efforts to develop communications to launch the rollout of recommendations from the Task Force on Time, Learning, and Afterschool report funded by the Mott Foundation. The report, tentatively titled "A New Day for Learning," will present the case for redefining methods of learning, using alternate conceptions of time, and supporting partnerships between schools and afterschool educators. The George Lucas Educational Foundation will produce multimedia editorial content related to the themes of the report in its magazine "Edutopia", e-newsletters, its Web site and short documentary films. Through these channels, the coverage is expected to reach at least 250,000 education professionals.
