Limited Capacity filling up

It’s clear that project-based learning provides students with meaningful educational experiences, but how might we leverage this model to help schools make meaningful change? Join us as we explore three possible models: Two that amplify the power of student voice in change-making efforts and one that brings educators together in partnerships with their students to question, explore, and challenge one another with an ultimate goal of understanding personalized learning.
We will share strategies for creating a student-led group to empower students in improving their school, resources for a semester-long high-school class that culminates in a change pitch to decision makers, and information for creating a space and time for educators and students to come together, collaborate and learn from and with each other around a common educational theme.
Participants will apply some design thinking strategies to go deeper into school change issues in order to imagine how these might fit into their current school models. Our goal is for participants to leave our session with plans in place for implementing project-based learning to support students in making positive school change at their schools.
