What does it mean to remake learning?
Remake Learning is a regional learning network involving more than 500 organizations, including more than 130 school districts, more than 80 out-of-school learning providers, and more than 30 universities, all working together to ignite engaging, relevant, and equitable learning opportunities for young people.
Our network, established in 2007, is an open group of interconnected, creative, and innovative people and organizations in the greater Pittsburgh region. Our purpose is to spark and share best practices and new ideas, make it easier for neighbors and colleagues to help each other, reduce duplicative efforts in the region, and leverage resources collectively for greater impact. No one organization alone can transform teaching and learning to better serve today’s young people, so Remake Learning helps bring them together.
The community of educators and innovators known as Remake Learning has made a tangible impact on the lives of teachers and learners in the greater Pittsburgh region.
- Learners have more opportunities than ever to pursue their interests along new learning pathways.
- Educators have more support to become learners themselves and continually improve their practice.
- Communities are enriched through more engagement and investment in their local learning assets.
- Network members are learning from the world and the world is learning from network members.

When learning is engaging, learners have the time, resources, support, environment, and encouragement to be active problem-solvers, creators, innovators, advocates, and citizens.
When learning is relevant, it resonates today with a learner’s interests, culture, context, community, identity, abilities, and experiences, while allowing room for exposure and growth. It also prepares learners for the future, in which interdisciplinary skills like creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration will be increasingly salient.
When learning is equitable, more supports and opportunities are afforded to those of greatest need. Based on national and regional research, this means particular attention is paid to working alongside, as well as uplifting and supporting the voices, strength, and potential of: learners in poverty; learners of color; learners in rural areas; girls in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math); and learners with exceptionalities.
