Share a great Education resource

Please understand that there are many individuals that may be experiencing similar circumstances as you. Each of you may know of a resource that may help others work out solutions to their problems and questions. Please SHARE YOUR KNOWLEDGE of a great  Education resource whether it is a great website, school, program, scholarship program or book, so that everyone in the NHU Community may benefit. If each person would take a little and each person would give a little, the collective sharing of knowledge would make a significant difference for all of us.

NOVA:  School of the Future is a two-hour documentary produced by NOVA that aired September 14, 2016 on the Wisconsin Media Lab, PBS Learning Media website. The film examines challenges that many American students face in K-12 schooling and follows educators, neuroscientists, an psychologists, who are working to re-imagine a more equitable future for education in the U.S. 

The Educator guide outlines how the research  informs strategies and interventions that are helping to improve classroom pedagogy and school environments today. These approaches include frequent, low-stakes testing; mindfulness training; developing "grit" to boost academic performance: and engaging students thour project-bsed “grit” to boost academic performance; and engaging students through project-based learning.  Educators and parents should check out the learning methods employed in these models.

Thank you to Alana for sharing the following education resources:

Thanks so much for getting back to me! I think it's great what your
organization is doing. I revisited your site today and reflected on
which resources would be a good fit for you and the folks who use your
site.  Here's what I came up with:
 
Financial Aid and College Resources:
http://www.gograd.org/resources/students-with-disabilities/
http://www.learnhowtobecome.org/college/financial-aid-for-students-with-disabilities/
 
Schools:
http://www.learnhowtobecome.org/college/
http://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/affordable-colleges-with-high-returns/
http://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/college-resource-center/affordable-colleges-for-students-with-disabilities/
 
Understanding the ADA:

Support for Teens:
http://www.uwec.edu/Counsel/pubs/selfhelp/selfesteem.htm
http://www.lighthouseguild.org/programs-services/education/support-for-parents-of-children-with-visual-impairments/tele-support-groups-teens/
 
I included the pages about colleges and remote learning opportunity
because individuals with disabilities may find it attractive to attend a
school that's flexible -- whether partially online, or wholly so. One of
the sites, Learn How to Become, has a really good page with financial
aid resources for students with disabilities. Because the cost of
college can be a major concern, I included a couple pages with lists of
affordable colleges, followed by a college guide for students with
disabilities.
