The Conscious Kid is creating Parenting and Education Resources through a Critical Race Lens

We are so grateful to have you here with us. Our goal with Patreon is to create a small, intimate community where we can get to know each other better, create space for in-depth, personal discussions, and respond to specific questions and concerns you have as you navigate intersections of race, equity, parenting, and education. To share a little bit more about ourselves, we are an 501c3 education nonprofit that equips parents and educators with tools they can use to support racial identity development, critical literacy, and equitable practices in their homes and classrooms.

We use critical race theory (which is intersectional) to navigate how issues of race impact young children and their identity development. Most of our work takes place off-line and is focused on critical media literacy research, teaching, advocacy, and increasing access to books that center marginalized groups. Every person on our team is a parent of color. The Black Curriculum. Early Childhood Social & Emotional Learning. The Worlds Largest Lesson.

Activist education – The Change Agency. Activist education is conducted by and with activists, is openly interested in the processes of change-making, and utilises education methods that effect justice-oriented social change.

activist education – The Change Agency

We use the expression ‘activist education’ to describe our work. This has implications not just for what we consider important for community organisers to learn, but how we believe adults learn most effectively. We’ve facilitated discussions and workshops with other social movement trainers and facilitators to explore just what might be involved in working as activist educators. The educational principles and practices (or pedagogy) that guide our work include: experiential and empowered learninglistening and reflectionmentorshipquestioning, not tellingexercises linked to real and contemporary change workbuilding a ‘container’ or learning environment characterisedby trust, openness, honesty, self-critique, mutual respect and support.

In early 2020 New Brunswick’s Education Minister, Dominic Cardy, worked very hard to make his network smarter. “When Canada’s chief public health official, Dr. Theresa Tam, was talking about there being no need to “panic,” and raising alarms instead about the internet-wacko fringe targeting Canadians of Chinese descent with racist comments on social media in late January, a little known Progressive Conservative education minister in a small Maritime province was fully panicking.

Battelle for Kids. Battelle for Kids. Bëurk Design©®™ Agency. Bëurk Design est une agence fictive de design créée avec thecamp pour créer, imaginer, dessiner ce qu’il y aurait de pire pour l’homme et la société.

Bëurk Design©®™ Agency

Les outils de cette fausse agence permettent de se mettre en posture de design inversé, pour décomplexer et débloquer la créativité autour d’un projet. Voici une présentation de la Bëurk Design Agency : “Chez Beürk Design Agency nous sommes convaincus que l’homme n’évolue que dans un contexte de contraintes et de souffrance.

La sélection naturelle n’est-elle pas la voie la plus rapide vers le progrès ? L’homme aurait-il été le même s’il n’avait pas souffert de l’ère glacière, des prédateurs et des maladies ? Designers Éthiques – Penser et concevoir des services numériques responsables et durables. Notions de Design : Systémique - Scribe - Medium. Le Design est difficilement définissable, il est une forme évanescente qui échappe à la poigne de celui ou celle qui voudrait se l’approprier.

Notions de Design : Systémique - Scribe - Medium

Cette fugacité est la force du Design, il n’est pas limité à une seule définition, il est toutes ses définitions à la fois, il traverse les disciplines mais n’existe qu’à travers elles. Le Design est définitivement humain, il s’adapte, évolue en permanence et essaye d’échapper à une pensée unique, avec plus ou moins de succès. À ce titre le design trace les contours d’une discipline hybride : le Design n’est pas un savoir qui anime des contextes, il est un contexte qui anime des savoirs. Le Design ne peut pas avoir de définition globale car il est uniquement définissable quand contextualisé, et les contextes d’application sont innombrables. Considérons que le design s’exprime comme un acte, un acte de design dont le designer en est la source émettrice.

Although we cannot predict with certainty the types of jobs that will exist in the future, we know that today’s students will need a variety of skills, “21st century skills.” However, these are skills that our students need today. Knowing this, we must ask ourselves what are the best ways to provide all students with ​authentic​, ​​​unique​,​ and innovative learning experiences that will foster the development of these essential skills?

How can we prepare students for jobs which may not exist yet in our ever-changing world? As an educator of 25 years, I have seen a lot of changes in ​education. Popular discussions in learning communities focus on ​teaching methods, ​the classroom “space,” homework and grading policies, and whether students need a college degree to be successful in the future. ​ Looking at the changes we have seen in the areas of education​ and work, I think the best action we can take is to offer specific types of learning experiences for all students.

For more, see: Preparing All Learners for an Uncertain Future of Work. By: Katherine Prince Continuous learning, cultural awareness, change expertise, adaptable and effective communication and the ability to learn from failure. These are just some of the capabilities that participants in KnowledgeWorks’ convenings on the future of work identified as being important for graduates. Finding resources to solve problems, time and project management, reflective leadership and a sense of responsibility to the broader community also promised to help all young people thrive no matter what future of work emerges. That question – what future of work will emerge – is unanswerable, making it critical to help young people, along with other education and employment stakeholders, plan for multiple possible futures. From today’s vantage point, we can identify two critical drivers of change shaping the future of readiness for further learning, work and life: the rise of smart machines and the decline of full-time employment.

During the month of December 2016, I embarked on a 30-day challenge to validate a business idea, limiting myself to spending less than $500 to make that happen.

I asked you to tell me what idea I should validate, too. The consensus: A hiking guide for California. The challenge was a major success. In just a few short weeks, I pre-sold 12 copies of a hiking guide (that didn’t even exist yet), generated $108 in revenue without a website and built an email list of 565 email subscribers who wanted to learn more about my upcoming hiking guide. This was all done without using my existing audience, business, website, traffic or any other resources aside from my skills and the system I teach students who want to validate a business idea.
