Rachel commented on The Quanta Challenge

This is a really cool idea, Steven Eno ! I love that you are focusing on daily, formative feedback for students through challenges and community-building. So important. I have children similar in age to yours and find that yes, they really crave ACTIVE opportunities to learn and as parents, we crave learning experiences for them that don't require all of our attention. I wonder, since you've had the chance to test a little of your idea with your 9- and 6-year-olds, what you've learned from them. Any surprises or iterations based on their feedback?

Thank you for your contribution!

Hi John D'Anieri ! Thank you for taking the time to submit your truly community-minded, equity-focused idea. Love that your submission includes a call for for folks whose ideas overlap with yours!

Just wanted to tag a few who you may wish to check out: Dawn M 's Rethink the School Building , Donna Teuber and Do we have to go back to school? , The Lyceum by Nick Angel and Merritt Wuchina 's Moving from 'me' to 'we' with emergent learning pods . Could be great sources of inspiration!

Feeling so inspired by your organization's dedication to the social-emotional development of students as well as equity, Mira Modise . Thank you for all you are doing to support their resilience and wellbeing - so incredibly critical during this time of crisis! As I think about characteristics of trauma-informed school systems, I'm reminded how critical it is to also provide SEL support for those implementing the tools (in this case, the educators). I wonder how Africa Unite might intentionally design space for the educators to build their own S-E skills before they do this for the students...

All the best!
