In its third year, LRNG Innovators has launched a new challenge, inviting educators to imagine engaging ways to help young people explore their interests, thereby igniting a passion that can lead to college, a career, or having a positive impact on their community. We seek proposals for programs, curricula, or projects that actively help youth discover interests connecting the spheres of their lives, both in and out of school, and provide potential future opportunities.
With endless possibilities for this highly competitive grant, Educator Innovator provided interested applicants an interactive webinar dedicated to boost imaginative proposal-shaping in addition to spirited dialogue that could prove useful in every learning experience. What are the main ideas and intentions supporting this phase of the LRNG Innovators challenge? From where have we drawn inspiration? How might educators, in various contexts, grow their approach to be more inclusive of youth interests and passions?
