RE@L’s “Mini-Blog”: A Few Wise Words Worth Reflecting On!

by | Apr 14, 2019 | RE@L StudentCorner | 0 comments

RE@L-logo_Corp_TM_New-Tag_8-15-17_CMYK-300x127RE@L  presents a timely Mini-Blog for our many busy readers. Our selected topic this week is “Systemic-Change.”

Systemic ChangeWe all realize that positive change is essential for positive results. But, for positive change to become lasting change, it must positively affect the entire system.

The catalyst to make that happen is known as “systemic change,”…. a change which both infects and affects the entire system.

Thousands of good teachers everywhere and every day bring positive changes to their students. How can we help all teachers make similar positive changes happen for their learners?


Dale Lafrenz – Chairman of RE@L

Here are some thoughts on this topic on the need for “Systemic-Change” from RE@L’s Chairman, Dale LaFrenz. Read on:

As our many RE@LBlog readers know, RE@L is firmly committed to Systemic-Change.

Systemic-Change brings a carefully devised plan to make learning reform work.

Here’s Wikipedia’s definition: “Systemic change refers to complete change in any system: for example, the whole national school system….

Systemic change is required when efforts to change one aspect of a system fail to fix the problem. The entire system needs to be transformed.” 

STEM-circles1That’s precisely what RE@L, with its emerging STEM Investigations, is committed to make happen in K12 learning: Systemic-Change (Click on the graphic to the right for more information).

We at RE@L are proud to announce a Systemic-Change plan and a roster of STEM-based “Investigations” software products to go with it.

These new software, resource-rich products are powered by RE@LTime™ Virtual Portal of essential and accessible tools and needed resources for both teachers and students.”

Now that’s what RE@L calls real “Systemic Change!”

There’s more to come on RE@L and our new Systemic Changes.

So, stay tuned!
