Households throughout America participate in Remake Studying Days, celebrating new methods of studying in a post-pandemic world
PITTSBURGH, May 11, 2021 / PRNewswire / – After a year in which the pandemic made traditional school and extracurricular learning opportunities nearly impossible and began reopening schools, libraries and museums, the Remake Learning Days this spring reconnected tens of thousands of families with the joys and opportunities for modern learning.
The Remake Learning Days reconnected tens of thousands of families to the joys and opportunities of modern learning.
Remake Learning Days is a family-friendly festival of innovative experiences in which young people create, code, play, design and tinker together with adults in their lives. At events that took place virtually and in person in schools, libraries, museums, technology centers, outdoor playgrounds and other learning venues, the families turned out in April and May, for example, to virtually explore the space and digitally create new works of art. To take advantage of new learning methods that a large majority of parents now want to see in their schools, families played and learned at events such as:
- Foam and science in San Diego
- Make a robotic hand out of recycled materials in Kansas City
- Origami, games and art in Chattanooga
First hosted in Pittsburgh In 2016, Remake Learning Days expanded to other locations across the country, drawing nearly 200,000 families to experience hands-on learning that blends art, science, and technology. This year, Remake Learning Days were held at 17 locations, including Chicago, rural east Kentucky, and Washington, DC
In many ways, the Remake Learning Days were inspired by Westerns Pennsylvania native and national icon Fred Rogers. Half a century ago, this beloved neighbor gave America the blueprints for what is needed in education right now – in our homes, schools, and neighborhoods. In his “neighborhood” Fred Rogers combined the technology of its time and the latest ideas on child development with the timeless values of childhood – creativity and play, love and belonging – to nurture generations of young people. It is this “Fred Method” that encourages Remake Learning Days.
Fittingly, the Remake Learning Days will celebrate Mr. Rogers at the end of this year’s national festival for innovative learning. On May 20thFamilies everywhere are invited to join a virtual event with some of Mr. Rogers’ real life colleagues who helped create his magical neighborhood: http://bit.ly/MisterRogersNeighborhood. And further 23. May – also known as “143 Day” – celebrated cookie activist Jasmine Cho will be sharing with families a special biscuit recipe inspired by the lessons of Fred Rogers as featured in the new book “When You Ask Yourself, You Learn” by Gregg Behr and Ryan Rydzewski: http://bit.ly/Celebrate143Day.
