What if young learners could be inspired to shoulder 100% of the responsibility for their own learning? How can schools and classrooms be designed to foster self-directed learning? What are the key motivating factors for self-directed learning? What are high-quality examples of self-directed learning and how can they scale?
HundrED, Transcend, and The Forest School’s Institute for Self-Directed Learning hosted a HundrED GLocal on “Inspiring students to direct their own learning” along with HundrED Ambassador, Tyler Thigpen, and discuss these and other important questions around self-directed learning. The event took place on Thursday, February 13, 2020.
K12 educators, school leaders, central office administrators, researchers, students, and parents are invited to join us for this two and one-half hour event at Pinewood Forest, a town purposely built for creators makers and storytellers, situated next to Pinewood Atlanta Studios, the largest movie studios in the United States outside of California.
We were excited that MyMachine Co-Founder Piet Grymonprez could present our work at this event next to the great work of a.o. Agora, The Forest School, Utopian Academy for the Arts, The Life School from Atlanta. Thank you Tyler Thigpen and all at The Forest School, Transcend and HundrED to have us.
