There are various programmes run under NFIE
that could be easily replicated in Wales to add real value to innovation and entrepreneurship.
DESCRIPTION: (1) As many as fifty grants will be awarded to public school teachers, higher education faculty and educational support personnel nationwide through NFIE
's Leadership Grants Program.
In 1996, we published our results and recommendations in the NFIE report Teachers Take Charge of Their Learning.
NFIE's report was grounded in the best that has been done in schools by teachers, parents, and their various partners in higher education, business, and the cultural community.
The NFIE report shows that when professional development is built into the daily, weekly, and yearlong job of teaching, it results in changed practice and student success.
The focus of NFIE is the vital role that unions, districts, and higher education can play in transforming professional development.
The NEA Foundation for the Improvement of Education (NFIE
) and Staples have teamed up for the Staples Recycle for Education Program to help put money back into public education.
The NEA Foundation for the Improvement of Education (NFIE) now offers NEA Fine Arts Grants to public elementary school art specialists through their local NEA affiliates.
NFIE also offers Arts@Work Grants to encourage public secondary school arts specialists to collaborate with technology-savvy educators and the business community to develop examples of technology-integrated arts curricula that meet high standards for student achievement.
Remember, NFIE's Innovation Grants and Learning & Leadership Grants are offered on an ongoing, year-round basis, so why wait?
Funded partly by a grant from The NEA Foundation for the Improvement of Education (NFIE
), the effort involved the University of Alabama, Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, and several public schools.
