    About the Webinar

    In the educational process students face problems with understanding due to the complexity of certain concepts and higher-level thinking processes. Educational researchers have started to introduce powerful new technology called Virtual Reality (VR) as a way to garner attention and stimulate learning as it provides computer simulation offering students a chance to interact with objects and concepts in a three-dimensional way.

    The Kansas City Kansas (KCKS) Foundation for Excellence, under the guidance of executive director Christal Watson is investing in eighty (80) educational virtual reality units for use with the Kansas City School District in 2021. School leadership is expecting 100% increase in student engagement and a 30% increase in test scores, results educators expect to be significant. Leadership will focus on using VR to enhance job readiness as well.

    Education foundations serve many roles as partnering agencies with schools, however none as impactful as improving academic and educational opportunities for students!

    Join Christal for a presentation of the technology, its potential impact and how her foundation is working with the District to enhance student learning and teacher impact!


    PLEASE NOTE: The webinar begins at 1PM EST/12PM CST/ 11 AM MST/10AM PST.

    About the Webinar

    Strong alumni engagement programs build relationships that benefit both the alumni and the students your Foundation serves. North Allegheny Foundation started an alumni engagement strategy four years ago and now includes homecoming, trivia nights, featuring alumni business owners and news makers, distinguished alumni awards and has raised over $100,000 in support of student success.

    Abigayle will take you through the entire experience - what worked, what didn't and will share a playbook you can use to start or build on your alumni program. Even if your Foundation is not the primary alumni association, you can still engage alumni in meaningful ways that support your mission and vision. By the end of the session, you will have actionable ideas and samples to get you started or to take your alumni engagement to the next level that will fit within your budget.
