About this event

  • 8 hours
  • Mobile eTicket

Projects, Pedagogy and Play is based on the idea of bringing together educators AND students from across the academic spectrum— including district schools, public charter schools, private schools and higher education— in a non-formal setting to share ideas, best practices and the common goal of putting student learning first.

Educators and students are asked to share projects they were working on, pedagogical models that support student centered learning, and ground it all in the understanding that playful learning often produces the best results.

Hosted at the unique and innovative Northwest Passage High School campus (Coon Rapids, MN), the event is a collaboration of NWPHS, Jane Goodall Environmental Sciences Academy, and Headrush Learning

To ensure a comfortable setting, this event is capped at 150 attendees.
