Many of us have been hard at work developing new strategies and programs to meet the rapidly changing needs of education in the 21st century. But there is a source of inspiration for these new ideas that we all too often overlook… kids themselves.
To an ever-increasing extent, today's students do not learn what we tell them to learn, they learn what they want to learn. The result is a never-before-seen importance of doing effective research that invites the infinite creativity and imagination of kids into the creation of new educational strategies and programs. It is no less important that we solicit the voice of kids to evaluate and optimize the fruits of our labor.
The Family Room has made a specialty of doing just this for youth education and enrichment organizations all around the world. The result? A new generation of youth education and enrichment programs better able to turn kids from disengaged passive acceptors to eager and engaged participants in the learning process.
