RLDAA is a festival of experiential learning events for youth and their families in diverse regions across the country. Events are hosted by a variety of organizations, such as schools, museums, libraries, community centers, and more. Activities are designed to be hands-on, relevant, and engaging, giving kids and caregivers an opportunity to experience future-facing learning together. Since launching in 2016, more than 53,000 youth, parents and caregivers have participated in 600+ Remake Learning Days events.
“Today’s students require a new set of skills in order to thrive as productive citizens,” said SOAR Executive Director Jared Arnett. “They need to be digitally literate, creative, critical thinkers who can communicate in a variety of mediums and collaborate well with others, and they need to be able to work across subject disciplines to solve real-world problems.”
Remake Learning events are organized by different learning themes such as: Arts, Maker, Outdoor Learning, Science, Technology and Youth Voice. In addition, there are Professional Development sessions for school, out-of-school, childcare and non-traditional educators.
RLDAA is presented by Remake Learning with national partnerships with PBS Kids for Parents and Digital Promise, along with National Sponsorships by The Grable Foundation, Schmidt Futures, and the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation.
