The Reconnection Company (RECO) and Leecy Wise, Owner and Consultant, create avenues for people to communicate with each other and to interact with resources tailored to their learning needs. We promote learning, and we make it our business to find out how that can best happen among those we serve.
RECO's mission is to foster and nurture digital (online, web-conferencing, and live video interaction) and onsite communities among those who want to expand their abilities to serve learners of all ages. We are a training center and a curriculum resource for alternative ways of helping people learn how to learn.
Because technology offers so many ways to reach underserved populations, we focus our efforts on developing resources that can be offered through web and video conferencing, and interactive online instruction.
Leecy presently works closely with Unlimited Learning, Inc., Red Rocks Community College , Utah State University/Eastern Campus, Literacy Information and Communications System (https://lincs.ed.gov/), PBS TeacherLine, and Native American Reservations in the Four Corners region of Colorado. To review her list of latest curricula, publications, conferences, and workshops, review her resume online.
Learning is change. We believe that learning is natural. If it isn't happening, something is wrong.
Learning is an individual thing. If we want to direct learning, we must know the learner. The rest is just planning and interacting, and planning and interacting, and planning and interacting, in as many ways as we possibly can!
Is it better to have learned and forgotten than never to have learned at all?
