A project of Deeper Learning, the Share Your Learning campaign highlights the value of having students present their work to authentic audiences. In sharing their stories of learning, students reflect on their growth and engage in real dialogue with others about their accomplishments and their futures. To get started, teachers can sign up to join a community of educators encouraging students to produce meaningful work for an authentic audience. After signing up, teachers can download one of the toolkits and have their students publicly share their learning via student-led conferences, exhibitions of student work, or presentations of learning. Then they can post an image or video on social media using the #shareyourlearning hashtag or upload directly to the Share Your Learning website under the Community tab. Share Your Learning aims to have 5 million students across the US sharing their stories of learning by 2020. That goal will require the participation of 300,000 teachers!
With all of the changes happening to the way students learn, now is an important time for educators to consider how they’re fostering creativity. Check out the infographic below on creativity from Canva.
