This tool, created by five education leaders, takes the reader through a visualization exercise to explore what a totally new, learner-centered education experience could look like. Through two vignettes it looks at a possible experience for a young learner as well as a teacher, turned learning coach. Through accompanying study/discussion questions it pushes readers to consider how they might contribute to the development of young people in their own communities.
This exercise could be used to inspire community members to support large-scale change. It could also be used to identify ways to harness the assets in a community to create relationships, learning experiences outside of school, and pathways to help young people develop their passions and reach their career goals. This issue of Pioneering provides a deeper look at the exercise with additional articles by all the authors.
