Location: Beautiful Mountain Home in Topanga Cyn, CA (address given upon RSVP)
The crossroads of education is a choice between Self-Directed and Other-Directed learning. Join Peace Guardians, Eliad Group, and other educators such as yourself in an exploration of the true nature of these two roads. What does it look and feel like to walk on the path of supporting truly Self-Directed Education? How are the relationships that make up our learning ecosystems re-framed when we change our focal points?
In this co-creative journey, you will play with the merging of ancient wisdom and proven structures such as iLead+Design and LEAP Academy. You will dive into methods that spark inquiry and cultivate creativity. You will cuddle with human centered design. You will explore ways to help youth build community, add value to their (our) world, and become designers of their own lives and learning, now and in the future.
Participants will experience:
New ways of thinking and speaking about education, including a language for properly framing challenges and opportunities
An introduction to frameworks of co-creation through self-directed learning, using real world community challenges
Practical resources that invoke play, wonder, connection, collaboration and courage which free us from conventional modes of problem solving
Hands-on use of tools and resources with clear next action steps
A tribe of fellow explorers, connected and ready to support each other on this journey
