Serving as the regional lead for the fourth year in a row, the WVPEC is partnering with Remake Learning to encourage West Virginia hosts to create future-ready, innovative learning experiences for youth of all ages, Pre-K through high school.
Featured learning themes include the arts, makers, outdoor learning, science, technology, youth voice and professional development. Students, parents, caregivers and entire families can join in and learn the science behind making tea, how to properly recycle, the physics of zip-lining and much more. Adventures in learning await, even from home!
“The WVPEC is proud to support our partner organization, Remake Learning, in offering creative ways students and families can experience learning inside and outside of the classroom,” said Donna Peduto, executive director of the WVPEC. “As our collaborative aims to champion public education across West Virginia, we know that innovation—in teaching, technology, curriculum and professional development practices—is key to optimizing the best education for our students. We look forward to working with our partners to help West Virginia’s youth gain the skills necessary that will allow them to achieve their brightest futures.”
Driven by technology, rapid cultural and societal shifts mean that children are absorbing and using information differently. The Remake Learning network launched Remake Learning Days in 2016 in response to the need to provide opportunities for parents to connect with the new, innovative learning happening in kids’ classrooms. In addition, the network wanted to bring these opportunities to a broader socioeconomic demographic of audiences. This year, more than 800 events are planned for youth, parents and caregivers to participate nationwide.
