Students present their passion project to parents, teachers, administrators, and the community via zoom or similar platform for sharing.
Tell us about your idea
The idea is to give student agency while assessing mastery by allowing for them to complete public exhibitions via online platforms. In this way, students engage in meaningful self-directed work, where they can work in collaborative groups, or independently, and still maintain the opportunity to present their work in a public forum.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
I’m a middle school language arts teacher who is currently getting my Ed. D in Innovation and Leadership, with a focus on Design Thinking. I believe we can change the education system on a systemic level, and through this chaos distance ourselves from outdated learning that does not truly benefit the user it is intended for- the students.
