L.O.V.E. of Learning (Learning Opportunities Valuing Everyone)

It has been wonderful to see a growing acceptance of student-centered learning, where the student is welcomed to pursue any course of inquiry while at school. In a sense, this is the beginning or the revival of academic freedom for our students. Teachers can now say to students “What matters to you, matters!” Yet educational alienation persists and the infinite personal interests and loves our students still have little or no place at school. Participates will gain concreate methods that provide students with learning opportunities that value everyone.
