The Gallery of Teaching and Learning
The Gallery of Teaching and Learning provides premier, digital representations of knowledge related to teaching and learning. The carefully crafted and vetted work of numerous participants of Carnegie Foundation programs and partners provides examples for individuals, projects, departments, institutions, communities of practice, and for the simply curious.
The George Lucas Educational Foundation (GLEF) was founded in 1991 as a nonprofit operating foundation to celebrate and encourage innovation in schools. Since that time, we have been documenting, disseminating, and advocating for exemplary programs in K-12 public schools to help these practices spread nationwide.
We publish the stories of innovative teaching and learning through a variety of media -- a magazine, e-newsletters, DVDs, books, and this Web site. Here, you'll find detailed articles, in-depth case studies, research summaries, short documentary segments, expert interviews, and links to hundreds of relevant resources. You'll also be able to participate as a member of an online community of people actively working to reinvent schools for the twenty-first century.
