February 18, 2014  |  2 comments

Alberto Carvalho, the schools chief in the Miami-Dade district in Florida, was named superintendent of the year on February 13 in Nashville. Carvalho has been Miami-Dade's schools chief since 2008, and an enthusiastic NFTE supporter throughout his tenure.  Carvalho recently recorded a video endorsing the work of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, which you can watch below. Upon accepting the award, he recognized the teachers, school board, staff and community partners, stating that the award was an affirmation of the work they were doing. It is acknowledgmentof Carvalho’s vision, which includes intensive upgrading of technology throughout the district and implementation of digital curriculum to prepare Miami-Dade students for the 21st century workforce. 

NFTE South Florida has partnered with Carvalho and the Miami-Dade County Public School district to advance these goals through NFTE’s Digital Classroom initiative, launched by Carvalho himself on October 14, 2013. The initiative, funded by the Knight Foundation, facilitates communication between students and entrepreneurship resources in the community by connecting them online.  The skills students develop include videoconferencing, document sharing, blog and forum posting, virtual presentation skills, not to mention all the advice they receive from the coaching sessions about their business plan.
