Blog Posts for Remake Learning Days

Recently I’ve had the pleasure of working with a lot of great educators and administrators, across a number of regions, on some blog posts for Remake Learning Days Across America (RLDAA), a really exciting expansion of Remake Learning Days, an annual festival of connected, hands-on learning started in Pittsburgh (by Remake Learning) in 2016.

The latest piece, on the upcoming festival in North Carolina’s Triangle region, just posted, but there are a bunch more (and more to come) here. The whole project is really inspiring, particularly comparing the varied approaches teams in each region are taking and the ways they’re utilizing their region’s strengths and assets.

If there’s an RLDAA near you this spring I definitely recommend checking it out.

“Space to Learn”

I’m very proud and excited to share links to a project I worked on over the summer, “Space to Learn,” a special publication produced by Root + All communications consulting firm for The Grable Foundation. The booklet examines innovations regional educators have been making in changing, experimenting with, and really paying close attention to the spaces in which students learn. (I learned that space is often thought of as “the third teacher.”)

You can read an overview here or download the whole thing (free) here.

This one was really rewarding and challenging to work on, weaving together academic work on the topic with the practical advice of teachers, principals, and school administrators. It contains theoretical perspectives on learning space design, other kinds of space that can serve as inspiration to teachers (e.g., artists’ studios and offices), and lots of practical hacks. (I learned that kids love whiteboards!) Also, it looks fantastic.
