ChatGPT in the Classroom: Uses, Limitations, and Student and Teacher Experiences by Lorin Koch
“Despite initial fears, generative AI is showing promise in helping educators with their jobs and offering new opportunities to students. At the same time, the current limitations of the technology may cause a variety of unexpected consequences.”

Promoting Plant-Based Diets in Seventh-day Adventist Schools by Shondell DeVelde
“Adventist education promotes wholistic mental, physical, social, and spiritual development. Learning about food and nutrition at school helps students understand God’s plan for their overall health. Schools can also help parents learn how to provide for their children’s nutritional needs at home to better support wholistic learning and development. Teaching and implementing plant-based approaches to eating is one way Adventist schools can do this.”

Rick Warren and Ellen G. White on Christian Character Development: An Unexpected Meeting of the Minds? by Wilfred Rieger
“As respective leaders in their faith communities, Rick Warren and Ellen White, in writing about aspects of character development, have offered teachers, as well as educators and parents, some valuable insights about a ‘project’ that ultimately has eternal consequences.”

Academia, the Sabbath, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution by Siroj Sorajjakool
“As we look forward to the world of digital revolution, the world that moves at unprecedented speed, the theology of the Sabbath invites us to pause and reflect on what it means to be human, created in God’s image, in the world where our identity and values are measured through numeric quantification. How can we, as Christian educators, resist the dominant discourse that sees humans as homo economicus [economic person]? How can we assist those within our demographics with knowledge and skills to live through these rapidly changing times rooted in digital cosmology so that we can live meaningfully, realigning humanity with the image of God in this new Industrial Age?”

The Geoscience Research Institute: A Resource for Teaching a Biblical Understanding of Earth History by Emeraude Victorin Tobia
Scientists with the Geoscience Research Institute “work to address questions and seek evidence concerning origins within the context of revelation and biblical foundations. Through conducting research and then communicating results, the GRI provides a valued service and is a critical resource for Adventist educators teaching and studying sciences: biology, ecology and conservation, intelligent design, geology, paleontology, cosmology, faith and science, and other sciences.”

Best Practice Approaches for Multigrade Education by Andrea Gray
“Multigrade educators have to use different approaches and structures to facilitate teaching and learning, as contrasted with the teachers of single grades. As novice and seasoned multigrade teachers navigate the processes related to instruction in a multigrade environment, they must understand and appreciate that this approach to learning is unique. Effective implementation of best practice approaches requires practice. With careful mentoring, educators will learn how to adapt these approaches effectively to various learning environments and to best meet students’ needs.”
