The next upcoming event for Learning2gether is Sunday, April 15, 2012 at 15:00
Dan Bassill of the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC will describe the four
part strategy he has developed to support the growth of a mentor-based
youth-development strategy and how it might be applied to
problem-solving process in any social sector and in any country. Dan
will also talk about how youth in high schools and colleges can take a
significant role in this process and how this will enhance their own
learning, problem solving and communications skills while also
creating future leaders who are better prepared to solve social and
environmental problems via world-wide learning and collaboration. Dan
says "While I apply this strategy to what I do to help kids in poor
neighborhoods of Chicago, I feel the model applies to any problem
solving effort." You can review the 4 part strategy at
I will be using this PDF for
the presentation slides.
Dan points us also to
"I get their newsletter and this looked
like an interesting tool to support ELS as well as regular learning."
- and also to the Learning Change Project: "in each of 8 sections it
talks about a different part of a learning strategy and it points to
PDFs and deeper reading that anyone can use.
... this is related to the
ideas of MOOCs that [Vance] wrote about last year. If these can be
focused on specific issue areas, rather than generic learning, they
could be powerful platforms for social problem solving."
