Cognitive Genesis Education Forum planned at Vista Ridge
Cognitive Genesis Education Forum
Sunday, August 11, 2013, at 12:00 p.m.
Vista Ridge Academy Gymnasium
How does Adventist Education Measure Up? In fact, Adventist schools lead the way! Find out the results of CognitiveGenesis, a four-year long research study that measured students' academic performance in Seventh-day Adventist schools across the North America. Learn what student, parent/home, teacher and school factors are associated with higher achievement.
Why did an award-winning filmmaker want to make a documentary about Adventist Education? See a trailer of the PBS documentary film by Martin Doblmeier that will be seen by 20 million television viewers in late 2013 and early 2014.
Dr. Elissa Kido, professor of education at La Sierra University, project director of CognitiveGenesis, and director of the Center for Research on Adventist Education K–12 (CRAE), will host this education forum to educate our constituency about the astounding results of Adventist education.
Kido has been an educator for more than 40 years, teaching Language Arts, English and English Education from the fifthgrade through graduate school. Her administrative experience includes: department chair, program director, assistant graduate dean, associate vice president for academics, and dean of the School of Education at La Sierra University. While dean, the CognitiveGenesis Project was launched — a groundbreaking research study to assess the academic achievement of students in Adventist schools in the North American Division.
At the last NAD Teachers Convention, in August 2012, Kido was awarded the Journey to Excellence Award for this research and her commitment to Adventist education.
Come on out and listen to the wonderful results that God is leading in Adventist education!
