The Meaningful Learning podcast is about designing and delivering innovative experiences that provide just in time learning. It brings together a community of educators who understand that learning is both a personal and a social experience, and can only be meaningful if it has an impact on the learner and her/his community. How we can prepare students for the present and the future, to cultivate their value of learning for itself, and be caring, kind human beings who make a difference in the world?

S1E3: What Have Students Learned During Their School Years and What Do They Value?

Listening to education podcasts, there are many conversations about the student experience that take place between adults, and while there can be so much to learn from pedagogical experts and leaders, it's all too rare that anyone asks the students themselves about their school years. 

In this Podcast, I interview 3 recent High School graduates about what they learned the past 4 year, in school and outside, what resonates with them, what they would change in schools, and what how prepared they feel for life after High School. 

We often talk about voice and choice for students, so this was a chance to give team space to express themselves. They have much to teach us if we want to design learning experiences that make an impact as well as make connections with the students. 

In this episode, we learn (confirm?) that students value choice, relationships, and the space to pursue their interests. No surprise maybe, but these kids have some insightful ideas about how to go about it all.
