Reimagining The System
Act now to reimagine education!
Kids can bring about change in the education system. Through small, regular actions over time kids can work with educators to actually change the education system. We encourage you to attend education conferences, ask if you can assist your local education department and even see if you can engage with education policy.
Here’s how you can start! Below you will find stories, learnings and exact steps you can try out to achieve what
these kids and educators did. Click on the resource that you'd like to learn and get started.
Let’s reimagine education together!
How can you begin reimagining education from anywhere in the world?
Kids Education Revolution works on spreading its 3 Principles [Kids and Educators as Partners, Kids as Changemakers, and Safe Spaces for Voice] and 8 Cs [Creativity, Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, Courage, Consciousness, Compassion, and Curiosity]. We believe that if these principles and skills were implemented in every classroom, school, community and education system, then we would have reimagined education. There are many ways to drive this change, but we choose the approach of love. As we become more aware of the many things that need reform in education, we respond with care and partnership.
In August 2020, we organized a 3-day workshop in collaboration with Teach For All for Educators from across the globe. Educators from 40 countries in the Teach For All Network joined in to know how they can implement the three principles and build the 21st Century Skills in their kids. The workshop series had attendees coming from 28 countries, namely, Albania, Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Gambia, Hong Kong, Ghana, India, Japan, Kenya, Malaysia, Lebanon, Peru, Portugal, Singapore, Qatar, Spain, Nepal, Nigeria, Taiwan, Tanzania, Uganda, UAE, US, and Zambia. Approximately 40 educators immersed themselves in the three principles and 8 Cs of KER and found ways to contextualize and take back ideas on reimagining the education system.
How can you take back our principles and 8 Cs?
Firstly, we request you to first take the time to go through the following to understand the Principles, 8 Cs, and the Approach of Love. Each of these pages are filled with short explanations and beautiful examples that will help you to really understand what they are about!
Acting on these principles will reimagine education.
Love is our approach to changing the education system.
Our C's are the skills that prepare our children for the 21st century.
Moving forward, we will be presenting to you an array of resources that will help implement each of the above! As you go through these resources that will help you answer the ‘how’ of reimagining education, please be sure to think of these questions as you learn -
What are you learning about safe space for voice, partnership and changemaking?
Is it sparking any ideas or thoughts that are relevant or helpful to your context?
We will come back to these questions at the end of this resource.
