QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
What have you accomplished through your Oak-funded programme that you’re most proud to share with your colleagues?
On November 3-4, 2016, we gathered 42 learners (16-21 years old) from 12 states and 15 learning environments for our inaugural SparkHouse gathering. Through this inspiring event, learners were truly front and center. Through the two days, we explored with them what learner-centered education means to them, what it could mean for the entire country, and in what ways they already are and might be leaders of the movement.
What’s the most interesting challenge your Oak-funded programme currently faces?
After our SparkHouse gathering of learners in November, we are eager to continue integrating learners in all aspects of Education Reimagined’s work. We recognize their voices to be the most powerful ones in the movement and see them as the best evidence for learner-centered education. We are grappling with what this commitment means for our strategy and action plan moving forward.
