2014 GRREC Summer Conference
Little Learners, Big Ideas Series Launches

WKU Center for Gifted Studies in partnership with Innovate Kentucky, PNC Grow Up Great, and GRREC Consultants have created a series of short videos on critical thinking in early childhood.  Both Allison Bemiss and Nancy Huston were an important component in this project. In addition to Allison and Nancy, several of the Race to the Top Preschool Pals and their families are featured in the videos as well. 

Below you will find links to all six videos in the Little Learners, Big Ideas series. For additional information regarding the use of these videos contact Allison Bemiss at GRREC.
