How will you help students find their voice?
Our education system is in an identity crisis - a cycle of educational-poverty in our schools. We have a responsibility to support our schools, to inspire our students and support their choices. We need to allow students to create their own identity - as individuals, classes, schools, and communities. This sets them free from other pressures.
How? Each community has relevant problems to solve and classrooms that could connect to solve them. What if you identified a community need and engaged a local classroom or school to solve it? What if you introduced a new game or resource to a classroom teacher?
The next generation of innovators is sitting in classrooms right now.
