Using Community to Revolutionize Student Networks

***To ensure an engaging and productive conversation, attendance will be capped at 30 people. The Zoom link will be available on this page 5 minutes before the session start time. Please note, clicking the “Register” button does NOT guarantee access, as attendees will be let in from the waiting room on a first come, first served basis.*** What if students no longer asked, “How am I going to use this in real life?” When you invite a scientist, engineer, developer or designer from the community into a classroom, you are opening up students to new opportunities and career paths. When students see themselves in diverse and multicultural volunteers, they create a new narrative of possibilities for their learning. When mentors partner with a teacher on experiential learning, students become producers, not just consumers of knowledge.
