Knowledge, Learning, Community

Centered in Pittsburgh, Remake Learning has spent the last ten years reaching out into the community to build a model of learning based on engagement. "Gone is the notion of a student passively receiving knowledge while seated in a classroom. Today, learning is an active, anytime, anyplace, lifelong experience that challenges both learners and educators to fulfill their potential," they write in their blog. To mark the ten years they have released two publications: the first is an eBook (29 page PDF) that "eports on the impact Remake Learning has made during its first decade, sharing examples of learning remade and tallying up what the network and its members have accomplished;" and second, a revised mission and values (8 page PDF) that redefines it as "a network that ignites engaging, relevant, and equitable learning practices in support of young people navigating rapid social and technological change."
