We were looking forward to our first global facilitator gathering, some exchanges, and our 5th ALF Summer facilitator training in 2020… but then COVID-19 arrived in NYC. The information below is 2019 info, for those just looking to get a sense of what trainings and events are usually are like here in East Harlem, but we won’t be hosting in-person events again until we’re sure it’s safe to do so.
In collaboration with facilitators from Gastonia Freedom School, Heartwood ALC, Abrome, and PDX Flying Squad, we put together over 20 hours of webinar content in lieu of our planned events. Access to those recordings is available at https://www.patreon.com/agilelearningcenters
Let’s talk about innovative education. About play and technology. About teaching self-teachers, running “Genius Hour” all-day every day, and supporting a community of unschoolers. Let’s change up our conversations about education, so they’re as intentional and agile as we are. When school is on holiday (or we can get subs) our facilitators and teens love sharing our learning beyond our immediate community. We typically host 1-2 NYC events each summer, and you can often find us at events to support newer ALC communities in places like Philadelphia, Sacramento, and Veracruz.
