A blog about Learning, about Education, about transformation, about change, about youth voice, about democratic human centered education. I am trying to ask the question "Why we educate" and what my answer means to me as a teacher and how my role shapes society and the whole.

Help Imagining Learning travel to more communities for a new round of listening sessions (video) in 2013! Imagining Learning’s work is more important than ever! Every donation will help us to reach more students and communities! Listening sessions reach deep into the hearts of young people and allow them to share their Voices, Visions and Wisdom about how they want Education to be Transformed!
Over the past 4 years Imagining Learning has done over 20 listening sessions with more than 100 students from over 6 states. A listening session ask students what their ideal learning journey would look like.
One of the major themes that has emerged is how much students value Hands-on and Experiential Learning!
These themes speak to an natural human way of learning. Each group of students is different yet most of their visions for an ideal learning journey include more hands-on learning.
Let’s bring more hands on learning to our learning communities!
Imagining Learning is also looking for more students, parents, and community members to help organize listening sessions in there communities. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here for more information
