In partnership with LRNG Innovation, the Show Me Campaign, and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Educator Innovator is investing in teams of teachers who are working to expand the time and space students have to create, explore, and follow their interests and passions.
Connected Learning research has shown that young people can achieve and learn when given support and opportunities to follow their interests and the time and space to create work that is meaningful to them. In most schools today, however, time and space are precious commodities, and students and teachers are both challenged to find time for deeper learning or the space to create. As a result, we may be missing a chance to support the innovators of tomorrow.
We know that educators like you, along with colleagues and community partners, are exploring ways to provide young people with opportunities for deep engagement and creative learning, both in school and out. Can you imagine an opportunity for your students with no bells, no walls? If so, you and your team may be eligible for a LRNG Innovation Challenge Grant to pilot, test, and share your ideas.
