The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) develops an annual Summer Learning Calendar online to facilitate continuous learning during the summer. The calendar provides weekly lessons, games, puzzles and a calendar of events from all over the nation to help kids explore each year’s theme.
In 2004 cleverSPIN began by developing a content management system that enables the AFT to automate the rotation of lessons and allows them to create a richer web of interrelated content, creating hundreds of page combinations to spark the imagination. Most importantly, the AFT can now use one tool to manage a revolving cycle of themes for future calendars, allowing staff to focus on enhancing content without the hassle of managing the technical infrastructure.
Summer 2006’s Learning Calendar is based on Geography. This year the AFT has teamed with the National Geographic’s My Wonderful World campaign aimed towards involving kids with geography. The new design interfaces old geographical tools with new technology evoking a sense of adventure with each lesson.
