What is Reimagined Learning?

Progressive learning for the 21st Century

It's democratic: my learners are given the opportunity to create a project of their own and self-assess their learning with my guidance and mentoring.

It's inclusive: it's important to me to value and include my learners' identities and backgrounds, and enjoying how well their learning truly flourishes.

It's child-centred: my students' personal efforts, achievements and goals are valued over grades alone.

No two kids ever take the same path. Few are remotely similar. Each child is so unique, so exceptional." Piaget

It's creative: my sessions have a large emphasis on creative writing. I share the most interesting stories, poems and ideas with my students to inspire them to create the best learning they can do.

It encourages critical thinking: my students are free to think more deeply about their learning by having the opportunity to ask questions, express their opinions and to problem-solve.

It values curiosity: children are equipped with the tools to pursue lifelong learning by allowing them to explore topics and ideas that they are curious about.
