RealSchool is an education reform program that has students engage in self-directed, collaborative, whole-person learning. This summer, RealSchool is giving all stakeholders in Jewish day schools the opportunity to experience RealSchool’s model. Whether you’re an educator, student, administrator, board member or parent, you’re invited to the RealSchool Summer Sandbox, where you can join a team of like-minded individuals and have the time and resources to “play and tinker,” that is, come up with a tangible project or event in your area of interest and return to your school ready to implement your new vision.
We’ve suggested team ideas in areas we know stakeholders are passionate about: student-driven and project-based learning; sustainability; digital literacy and citizenship; community-based learning; meaning-making in Jewish day schools; and school culture and leadership. We’d love for participants to create their own teams based on their interests as well. So get ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work on creating the school and classroom of the future!
