The first year Shaping Our Future Together team (Jane Feinberg, Helen Beattie and Daniel Baron) developed a web-based Public Understanding and Engagement Toolkit that is serving not only Vermont, but also the entire New England region. This work was spearheaded by Full Frame Communications and funded by Nellie Mae Education Foundation. The Foundation is committed to enhancing public understanding of student-centered learning throughout the region and has adopted the Shaping Our Future Together model as an exemplar.
