Over the course of the last year, I have facilitated more than 50 online learning sessions for Youth and Educators Succeeding and our programs including Freechild Institute, SoundOut, and GenYES. More than 5,000 students and adults have participated and I’ve become really excited about facilitating learning online.
For more than 20 years, I have strove to create learning environments in all of my knowledge and skill-building activities. I also work with hundreds of teachers and other learning leaders every year to encourage them to do the same.
Creating powerful, practical and effective learning opportunities should the goal of every educator committed to increasing student power. When students have voice, authority, and take action to improve in learning, they find meaning in what they’re doing. Working to build student commitment to community, democracy and education requires Meaningful Student Involvement in learning.
