Remake Learning Days
NEOStem Ecosystems will be participating in Remake Learning Days, a national celebration and clearinghouse of innovative learning and engagement, May 15-17, 2021. This is a great opportunity to put into practice what we’ve learned about education, social systems, and learning equity through our redesign process, while highlighting the important work we are doing in Northeastern Ohio. We’re asking that you consider participating by designing a unique, hands-on learning event open to all in the communities we serve. These events should be designed to “spark creativity, perseverance, and curiosity,” through equitable community engagement.
Members can start by filling out the form linked here, outlining the idea, anticipating need, audience, and resources necessary, and Tim Francisco, consultant on the project, will work with each group to map out details and connect resources.
Events can be virtual or face-to-face, and should engage one of six Learning Themes: Arts, Maker, Outdoor Learning, Science, Technology, Youth Voice, and Professional Development. Explore the website to get a better sense of the terrific work being done across the country, and for inspiration for your own organizations.
We can use this national forum to create and showcase events that put into practice much of what we’ve learned as educators and activists about equity, community, and creativity during the pandemic, and to co-create a vision of what our learning communities will be and do moving forward.
The National Kick-Off is October 13, 2020, so we will need to have our events lined up with dates and descriptions well before then, so once we have a commitment from all of you, we’ll move ahead with regular planning meetings and updates.
