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?

S2E9:Finding joy in learning through PBL (ft. Tanya Sheckley)

In this episode of the Meaningful Learning podcast, I speak with Tanya Sheckley, Social Entrepreneur and Founder of UP Academy, an elementary school in San Mateo, California, which is the first school in the world where kids who are able bodied and kids with physical disabilities learn together in the same classrooms. UP Academy focuses heavily on Project Based Learning, showing that elementary school students aren't too young to engage in authentic experiences.

 In this podcast, Tanya and I discuss:

  • How to develop core academic skills through student agency
  • How to build a school culture that promotes and sustains joy in learning and teaching
  • How to model lifelong learning to the students and adults alike.
