Why did you create this innovation?
No one organization alone can transform teaching and learning to better serve today’s young people, so Remake Learning helps bring them together -- with equity at the center. Our network, established in 2007, is a remarkable group of interconnected, creative, and innovative people who are grounded in the learning sciences and contemporary learning practices.
How does your innovation work in practice?
Remake Learning is a regional learning network working together to ignite engaging, relevant, and equitable learning opportunities for young people.
Remake Learning cultivates the Pittsburgh region's capacity for equitable innovation in education through five roles:
-Convening a diverse and inclusive community of practice through meetups, lunch & learns, and networking events
-Catalyzing equitable, engaging, and relevant approaches to learning by making grants to educators in and out of school
-Communicating opportunities, resources, and stories of learning remade to local and global audiences
-Coordinating cross-sector working groups on key focus areas such as STEM/STEAM, computer science, professional learning, youth voice, shifting power in educational research, personalized learning, and more
-Championing the future of learning through public events, celebrations, campaigns, and the annual Remake Learning Days festival
How has it been spreading?
What's happened in Pittsburgh has inspired and influenced regional learning ecosystems and networks elsewhere -- across the United States from California to North Carolina, from Tennessee to Chicago; and also across the world, from New Zealand to Spain.
And, over the years, the educators involved in Remake Learning have been recognized with such honors as the Disruptor Award, the Digital Innovation in Learning Awards (presented by Digital Promise and EdSurge), PBS Innovator Awards, Infy Maker Awards, and membership in the League of Innovative Schools.
