Students Offer Advice During Kickoff of Remake Learning Days in NEO
Watch the NeoSTEM planning meeting here.
CLEVELAND – Educators must partner with youth. This is one of the key takeaways from the kickoff of Remake Learning Days for Northeast Ohio held in late January.
Samone Cummings, a 14 year-old sophomore at John Hay Early College High School, said teachers and others offering educational opportunities for youth need to listen to those they seek to serve.
“It needs to be a partnership that we should have with the youth. Instead of talking to us, talk with us,” Cummings said.
Cummings and Annalise Everett, a senior at Ohio Connections Academy, joined the kickoff to share their experiences as graduates of WIR’ED, a program that pairs students with businesses to help teach business owners how to improve their online presence.
WIR’ED will be one of the programs featured as part of Northeast Ohio’s own Remake Learning Days, scheduled for May 15 to May 23.
Remake Learning Days seeks to showcase unique learning opportunities in our region, especially those that involve hands-on learning.
“Wired gave me a platform with my client to be able to help her, to be able to share my knowledge and to see that knowledge be effective in her life,” Everett said. “Her business is her entire life and she’s in a better place now because I was able to share my knowledge with her. And it also gave me confidence, helped me realize, you know, I do have confidence. I do have knowledge that I’m able to share.”
In addition to WIR’ED, NeoSTEM, organizer of Remake Learning Days in Northeast Ohio, is seeking additional programs. The events can be in-person or virtual.
If you have an event that you want to showcase, you can upload here for Remake Learning Days.
NeoSTEM will then work with your organization to help promote the event and your organization.
