My School - My Community
My School – My Community is an innovative approach to learning that directly and actively engages students. Through hands-on exploration, students learn to effectively use creative storytelling and media to catalyze change and mobilize action, serving their communities as agents of social change. Now in its second year, My School - My Community uses communication tools to enable and empower students to take ownership of their school, provides a platform for student voices in the decision making process and builds the capacity of youth to engage peers, administrators, teachers and parents in building a strong, collaborative school community. The program utilizes a problem-solving based learning approach. In the process, students learn to tackle complex, open-ended problems and communicate these issues and proposed solutions to a variety of audiences.
