What's the 411 on Wallace's New Website?
What’s new on the Wallace website?
We’ve added several new features that we hope will make it easier for you to navigate our site and find the information you’re looking for. Here are a few:
- Reports, articles, and other resources are easier to find using our improved search and filtering options at the top of every page
- You can create a free user account and save reports, articles, and other materials that you want to bookmark for future use
- A new section called Insights synthesizes what we’ve learned, what we’re learning, and how we are making sense of it all
- We've expanded Working at Wallace and Careers pages to help you easily find information about us
- We're featuring more photos, videos, and other multimedia help underscore the people and stories behind the work we’re doing
What happened to the Wallace Blog and the Knowledge Center?
The Wallace Blog and the Knowledge Center technically no longer exist. But rest assured that all our reports, articles, and other resources are still available. You can find these resources using the search bar and filtering for a specific topic (e.g., arts education or school leadership) and/or resource type (e.g., article, report, or podcast.) You can also begin your search on the Resources page, or pick a topic and filter down from there.
Check out the demo below to learn how you can find resources you can use to support your work.
Are the reports that used to be in the Knowledge Center the same as they were on the old website?
Yes and no. The published reports—the PDFs you download—are all the same. But improved landing pages help make the information easier to consume. You will now find:
- Richer summaries of the main findings of each report
- A “How we did this” drop-down box, which summarizes the methods used for the study
- Bulleted takeaways and on-page graphics to help scan key findings
- An "Implementation Tips" section for each report for those looking for hands-on guidance
- Easily accessible related materials such as videos, webinars, and articles
Check out the demo below for an at-a-glance overview of all the main points of our reports.
We have links on our website that went to the Knowledge Center and are now breaking. What should we do?
We have taken steps to ensure that links to our most popular publications will be automatically forwarded to the new site. Unfortunately, we could not do the same for the hundreds of items in our database. If you find a broken link, please try searching for the name of the publication using the search box at the top right of each page on the site. You can also try searching for the name of the author or publisher, if you know it. If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, feel free to contact us.
You mention that we can now save reports and other items on the Wallace website. How do we do that?
Three easy steps:
- Create a free account
- Once you’re logged in, find the resource you'd like to bookmark
- Click the bookmark icon for that resource. You'll find it on the same line as the date.
Bookmarked resources will be saved to your dashboard, the first page you see when you log in. You can also follow one of our seven topics by clicking the “Follow This Topic” button on each topic page. To see all of your saved resources, click on "Dashboard" at the top right, and then click on “Your Bookmarks and Downloads”.
Check out the demo below to see how you can create your own dashboard and save resources for reference later.
Where can I find information about Wallace’s current work and grantees?
To find information about our current work and grantees, click “About Us” in the top navigation. From there, you can read about our focus areas and initiatives. These pages will give you a sense of what we’re working on in each of our focus area. You can also find more information about our current and past initiatives in each area, including the grantees we’re working with.
You can read more about how we work with grantees and see any open requests for proposals. We are currently working on a new searchable database that will contain listings of the numerous grantees we’ve worked with over the years. It should go live in the spring of 2024.
