We envision a time when all the educators interacting with an individual student share trust and intent to broker experiences that enrich each youth’s personal learning ecosystem.
Youth navigate within their own learning ecosystems, but with support educators can broaden the learning pathways available to youth. This work seeks to enable educators to more effectively guide youth experiences with science by connecting learning pathways inside and outside the classroom.
We seek to build confident, competent educators and librarians who view effectively brokering youth experiences as essential to their work. We aim to support them to have the knowledge, tools, and resources needed to offer compelling experiences with data and climate learning.
Shared educator professional learning experiences will support educators to build expertise within and create communication corridors between contexts — moving best practices across the boundary between informal and formal learning.
