Born out of Promethean's own ..., 30 June 2014 [cached]
Born out of Promethean's own Education Strategy team, EFF will be taken forward by its founder, Jim Wynn, who has been named CEO of the newly independent Education Fast Forward organization. According to Wynn, "With the finite resources we have had available to date, EFF has already reached and engaged significant global audiences and included some of the world's most influential people in its debates. Moving forward as an independent organization, we will be able to draw from a much wider pool of support that will ultimately help us achieve much more. Put simply, EFF wants teachers to think about policy and policy makers to think about the classroom. EFF also wants the youth voice heard, challenging the establishment while also learning from the successes and failures of the past."
In addition to his new position as EFF CEO, Jim Wynn will remain as Promethean's trusted education advisor, providing guidance on the themes that matter most in education.
