Our intrepid Lumen8ers, discussing 21st Century Learning!

We talk a lot about student centered learning. Not just the education community at large, we specifically mean at the Lumen Touch office. This summer, we have a cohort of some amazing Lumen8 Educators spending the summer with us to bridge the gap between the community and the classroom!

We spoke a lot about letting students own the classroom, counting on them to present to the outside community, and have other be the final arbiters of grades.

Read on for more techniques, on the classroom, building, and district level!

In a great Op-Ed for the Oakland Tribune, Scott Morgan, Founder and CEO of Education Pioneers, explains why education can be an exciting, challenging, and rewarding path for young graduates.

  1. Teaching experience can be powerful and life-changing.
  2. After teachers, skilled leaders and managers have the highest impact on a student’s learning.
  3. Leaders in education take on complex and challenging problems, as they would in any other field. But in education, the stakes are higher and the rewards oftentimes more meaningful.

Impact, legacy and the greater good are all important aspects of a career, and energetic young grads will find all of those in education! Read on to find more benefits at the Education Pioneers blog.
