Students + Educators

In this part of our Re-Imagining programming, we help educators and students collectively explore models and mindsets that promote rich, meaningful learning. Challenging dominant concepts of education, participants consider learning goals and experiences that enable young people to thrive in their education and their futures.

Our 2018-19 learning experiences will consist of:

 

  1. In-Person Gatherings, which happen in September, January, and June, bring together educators and students for meaningful conversations that re-imagine learning. In September, we will watch and engage in lively discussions of the documentary film Beyond Measure.  Check back here in coming weeks for the date, location and other details.
     

  2. Online Hangouts (7 to 8 p.m.) are scheduled for the second Tuesdays of: October 9, November 13, February 12, and March 12.  They provide virtual opportunities for educators and students to deepen the conversations and insights from our in-person gatherings through:

    • Twitter exchanges on the topics and challenges that students and educators find most compelling.  For example, what do we mean by “authentic learning”?

    • Online discussions immediately afterwards in which students and educators give their perspectives on ideas shared during the Twitter conversation.

    • Consulting with each other on particular challenges and opportunities involved in implementing bold learning practices.
