This panel of teachers and students will discuss their work with Tract, a peer to peer edutainment space where students create media, clubs, and classes in their voices. Legendary educator Esther Wojcicki, Tract CEO Ari Memar, and Tract Creators Carissa Cabrera and Gibran Nassif will discuss the importance of bringing together student agency, problem based learning, student directed learning, media creation, and CC licensed open educational resources into student created learning pathways. Empowering students to think critically and independently, and openly sharing their creative expressions, is the key to solving the world’s biggest challenges.
