As we prepare our youth for the future, we are well aware that learning is quite different for them than it was for us at their age. Studies predict that more than half of the children born today will be working in a field that doesn’t even exist yet. So how do we teach our youth differently to prepare them for the unknown?
In Pittsburgh, the Remake Learning Network is leading the way in reimagining learning, and you can read about it here. You can also find the best events, programs and activities for kids to learn creatively, and connect with members of Remake Learning to get involved.
The Remake Learning Network is a collaboration of more than 200 schools, museums, libraries, early learning centers, and out-of-school organizations across the region that is helping kids acquire the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to become future ready.
While we may not know what the future will look like, we can prepare our youth to think creatively and to explore fearlessly. Visit remakelearning.org to learn how to join this network, download the Remake Learning Playbook and access a calendar of upcoming events.
