We are excited to host a follow-up discussion on the edu-documentary, Most Likely to Succeed, on May 9, 2016, from 6:30-8:00 pm in the Neenah High School cafeteria. Some of the questions which resonated before, throughout, and after the film were, "Now what? How can we create the type of learners shown in the film?" In Neenah, the film was originally screened March 9,2016, in Pickard Auditorium at Neenah High School, with a discussion which followed that evening featuring Oliver Schinkten of Linkedin and Dr. Joshua Garrison of the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. The conversation included questions about what type of education is essential in preparing students for real life once they graduate. People also asked about setting up a Project Based Learning-like experience in individual classrooms, as a program or throughout an entire school. We will explore the next steps for the creation of a student centered educational environment for all students on May 9.
For a Most Likely to Succeed refresher, please see the 2 minute trailer, the 11 minute thesis, or the website.
Students decided to bring our community more together by creating a Humans of Neenah Blog similar in format to the ever famous Humans of New York Blog. Like our FaceBook Page "Humans of Neenah" to get to know another Neenah resident every week. Neenah has so much to be proud of!
We are excited to have made it through year one of our vision with great success! Many said four core subjects couldn't be completely integrated into a public school project based learning environment. They didn't account for our team's dedication and creativity! We look forward to annotating year two of our journey!
