No Bells, No Walls: Learning Alongside 2014 LRNG Innovators Challenge Grant Awardees

Date: October 22, 2015

Summary: In this episode, we joined our Writing Project colleagues who led projects that were awarded 2014 LRNG Innovators Challenge grants to build interest-driven and learner-centered opportunities in schools. Our guests spoke about the connections they made, key questions raised in this work, and what all educators can learn working alongside youth as they produce, tinker, experiment, make, perform, and create.

 

Excerpt from Show

Bryan Ripley Crandall —Director of the Connecticut Writing Project at Fairfield University—on why education needs more investments like the LRNG Innovators Challenge:

We need more John Legends. We need more people in the nation investing in ways for our classroom teachers and their students to be more innovative. We have to be creative and flexible and innovative in the rules we provide our classroom teachers."
