From Surviving to Thriving - A Gift for You

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model.
Buckminster Fuller

"From Surviving to Thriving: Creating a Way Forward in Challenging Times," is a complimentary video series offering ideas for sustaining your early childhood organization through this world-wide crisis. Every Wednesday in coming weeks a new video in this series will be released through ExchangeEveryDay and posted on the Exchange website. Last week, the first video, "Supporting Adults in Your Community" was posted.

Today, at you will find the second video, “Technology as a Lifeline.” (as well as the video from last week).

In this second video you will hear program directors and technology experts discuss how early childhood professionals have been creative and diligent in using all forms of technology to strengthen connections with families, children and each other. One major message is that what we are learning about using technology may have great value in the future, even after the pandemic is over. We hope you are finding this free video series helpful. Feel free to share it widely!

"From Surviving to Thriving" has been developed as a collaboration between Exchange magazine, Hinge Early Education Brokers, and Video Active Productions, with the donated services of producer Roger Neugebauer, World Forum Foundation Global Impact Engineer and video creator, Dan Huber, Founder of Video Active Productions. We are so grateful.

Another resource we think you might find helpful at this time is Out of the Box Training Kits (see below). One kit in particular, “Preparing Parents for Change,” might be especially helpful right now as programs are going through many changes.
