Remake Learning Days
Remake Learning Days (RLD) is a festival that celebrates the joy of learning. The event began in 2016 in Pittsburgh and since has spread to 17 regions in the United States and to several other countries. Remake Learning Days celebrations are composed of many free or low-cost, family-friendly learning events that are designed to help caregivers engage in their child’s learning and familiarize themselves with what learning looks like today. In 2019, Remake Learning Days partnered with the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Career Ready PA to align events with career readiness standards that allow students to earn artifacts for their career portfolios.
Remake Learning Days Goals:
- for parents and caregivers to learn alongside their children and expose families to what innovative learning looks like
- to have a region-wide celebration of the incredible learning opportunities that exist in all neighborhoods
- to ignite a conversation among diverse stakeholders about what the future of learning looks like
- to strengthen a region’s learning ecosystem
