 New Online Radio Show To Promote Innovative and Creative K-12 (and beyond) Programs, Events, Classes, and Activities


“We are all concerned about the future of American education. But as I tell my students, you do not enter the future -- you create the future. The future is created through hard work.”


― Jaime Escalante

The Michigan Business Network and Michigan Creativity Group are excited to present a new online weekly radio program "Students United: Mobile Minds Flipping Society." Given the increasing expectations of society in regards to education, it is vital to tell the stories of learning successes in Michigan K-12 schools and other settings . This is why the hosts of the show Jeff Croley and Jason LaFay (two current K-12 teachers) want to know about the great things taking place on a daily basis throughout the state. To listen to the program, please go to www.michiganbusinessnetwork.com. The following is a list of objectives for this most timely program:

*Share stories of innovative and creative projects, organizations, activities, events, classes etc. that are providing high quality educational experiences for learners

*Publicize the efforts of educators throughout Michigan to build more support from the public

*Create a dialogue between education and business in order to better understand the needs and challenges of both

* Serve as a connector between different education providers such as traditional K-12 schools, private schools, alternative schools, charter schools, online academies, parochial schools, and homeschooling families to share best ideas and practices to meet the learning needs of diverse students

*Help inform educators of learning opportunities for students outside formal educational settings such as businesses, governments, foundations, voluntary associations etc.

*Provide a platform for the voice of students and other learners to share their ideas and efforts regarding education and learning

*Work with other organizations to create and promote events that showcase educational innovation and creativity on a regional and statewide basis

*Foster collaborations between education and other sectors of society to enhance local, regional, and state economic development, specifically in the areas of STEM, arts, and entrepreneurship

*Begin a dialogue concerning the development of Michigan as a "learning state" or society
