Joy has been on our minds and on the agenda, as we all work toward the end of a third school year disrupted by a global pandemic. How do educators sustain themselves under the seemingly endless crush of challenges heaped upon them? What School Could Be would like to help. Thanks to a generous grant, Project Joy launched in January in the WSCB Community, offering yoga, mindfulness sessions, games, film screenings, and a space to share and celebrate your joys along the way, big and small.
Throughout the spring, Project Joy will offer:
- Mindfulness training and practice sessions
- Weekly yoga classes
- A monthly virtual screening of the film Mission Joy, the story of friendship between Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama, followed by a facilitated conversation on including joy in our daily lives
- Weekly puzzles and challenges via our friends at BreakoutEDU, including training in game design
- A photo challenge with prizes awarded monthly
If you have any questions, please be in touch. And please do share this offering with colleagues who might benefit – there’s plenty of joy to go around!
YPAR (Youth-led Participatory Action Research) is an innovative approach to positive youth and community development based in social justice principles in which young people are trained to conduct systematic research to improve their lives, their communities, and the institutions intended to serve them.http://yparhub.berkeley.edu/
Love the Photovoice Toolkit and the Photo Guidelines
Instructables from MIT’s Edgerton Center. Use these as examples to students for making their own instructables.
Idea Gallery has a lot of inspirational Maker projects. You can filter by tools or objects.
