Contribute, Curate, Convene #inspireASIJ
My hunch is that our most potentially powerful collaborators are right under our noses. As we look to innovating, prototyping, iterating (not sure that’s a word), trialling, and tinkering with how we do ‘school’, it’s the kids who we need as our design partners. A personal learning goal for me this year is to empower and advocate for our students so they might have a greater voice in how we ‘do’ learning at ASIJ.
One idea to foster voice is to launch a stream of ideas via the Twitter #inspireASIJ. We’d like Contribute, Curate, Convene to be about students (past and present), teachers, parent…and all interested others posting inspirational videos (and other content) to form a stream of information that might challenge and spark ideas. Student curators can create playlists to share online and to screen during school days in the HS Library learning space. Clubs, groups and individuals can convene pop up events to discuss, debate and deliberate.
What other ideas might we try to empower and advocate for student participation in rethinking learning?
All difficult things have their origin in that which is easy, and great things in that which is small.
