Codesign and the Liberated Spirit of Your Learning Community

Session 2
Pam Moran, Ira Socol

What if the spirit and nature of a learning community was grounded in codesign, not hierarchy? When young people construct experiences through codesign, the streetscapes of learning change, leading to unanticipated relationships, social connections, emerging strengths and talents, new expertise, and self-actuated learners. We’ll share codesign stories and explore codesign together.

Using Radical Roots to Create Deeper Learning Experiences

Session 3
Joshua Block & Alexis Clancy

Join SLA teachers and students for an interactive workshop about the design of deeper school learning experiences. Collectively we will (re)read work from both widely known and frequently overlooked progressive and radical educators. Participants will then develop and share creative responses as we develop ideas about enacting a vision of deeper, democratic learning in the everyday reality of classrooms.
