Links mentioned in this video:
Adventist education is not school buildings – it is a philosophy. It is about students and the teachers that teach them, that philosophy is best illustrated in the book Education but there is a journal – a journal of Adventist education that supports teachers and applying that philosophy in a variety of settings and we have Beverly Rumble, the editor nearly working for forty-one years with this journal to talk with us about it. How many languages does the journal come in?
It is in four languages, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.
And for those who can’t get it on paper, is it on the web?
It is, there are more that twenty years worth of articles in a searchable database in all four languages and the website itself is also in four languages.
JAE.adventist.org we will put that on the screen later and you have gotten a number of awards and nominations for first place. What for?
We’ve had awards for articles on the philosophy of Adventist Education and we had won an award on how to have a butterfly garden at your school and an award for design for the General Conference issue of the journal among others for articles and for theme issues.
And this journal goes all around the world, it is not just here in the United States.
It goes to every continent.
What about homeschooling teachers, can they get this journal?
They can order it, they can order a subscription of five copies a year and they can even use a credit card to pay for the subscription
So any teacher, whether working in a school or outside of the Adventist system or teaching their own children in their home can take advantage of the Journal of Adventist Education.
Yes and we hope that also pastors will be able to read the journal as well as school board members and other people who are interested in Adventist education.
Thank you Beverly for what you are doing with the Journal of Adventist Education.
Thank you Lisa for your leadership.
