REGENERATIVE EDUCATION COMMUNITIES 

 

Regenerative  Together with mitigation and resilience, regenerative action directs us to our skills & knowledge project goals.

Education  These project goals need to be researched, taught, & learned to continually develop & improve effective curriculum, pedagogic practices and learning environments. 

Communities  The project is created by and for prosocial communities around the world that are local, diverse, inclusive, place based, and globally connected; where all cultural knowledge groups can contribute equally.

THE TEAM

networked improvement community

  • An involved network of schools, universities, and ecosocial & indigenous communties

  • Collaborative, iterative, and grounded in systematic inquiry

  • A five year research project which evaluates, designs & improves curriculum & practices and creates place based learning environments for K-12 students.

  • Inclusively leveraging the programs around the world with an advance understandings about what works where, when, and under what conditions.

THE METHOD

Interactive online courses, global diScussion group apps., & regional regenerative camps​​

  • Concept-based curriculum (Erickson et al., 2017) and teaching for conceptual understanding (Stern et al., 2017) are approaches to designing curricula, units, lessons and assessments that help achieve deeper and transferable understanding of concepts and general principles of a theme in students, where specific subject content and facts serve as a means to achieve such deeper understanding, rather than an end in itself.​

  • Many different knowledge processes are involved in learning. Specific teaching and learning methods can be woven into the design of a lesson and unit to build on and support these knowledge processes.

How can the Regenerative Education Community (REC)project support students to have "the imaginative range – the capacity to conceptualize and enact different ways of being in the world – to transcend the problematic ecological norms of the cultures in which they are nurtured (i.e., what would an idealized multi species “village” look like?)”.
