Remember Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech? Of course you do. Who doesn’t?
While the speech is often used to talk about the future in terms of race relations, that speech, his dream, was really about hope. And leadership. Learning. Understanding. Empathy. Acceptance.
Although Dr. King didn’t get to see his dream realized, I’m grateful that so many humans continued on the path to create a better future.
One of those humans was Fred Rogers.
Mr. Rogers, everyone’s favorite neighbor. He was a master at helping children (and their grown-ups) navigate transition and change. Life for all of us is incredibly changed right now, and inspired by Mr. Rogers, Remake Learning has come up with a plan to support our kiddos in adapting.
“Often, when you think you’re at the end of something, you’re at the beginning of something else.” – Fred Rogers
You know, I bet a lot of people thought the idea of hope was over after Dr. King died. They thought it was the end.
Like Fred Rogers said though, it’s just the beginning of something else.
What does something else look like for you right now?
For us, it’s been a transition to distance learning and finding ways to stay social with friends when you can’t be in the same place.
It’s cooking more at home, and practicing new skills. Something else has been getting closer to our family, and counting our blessings.
It’s being grateful for today and hopeful for tomorrow.
Tomorrow, powered by Remake Learning is about what comes next
That’s the goal of Tomorrow, powered by Remake Learning. It’s a campaign that challenges us to move forward and create a future where every humans are connected and work together to prepare for what’s next.
From young people and their families to educators, Tomorrow, powered by Remake Learning, is inspired by Fred Rogers. It kicks off today, May 22, or 143 day—a day to celebrate kindness and love.
From May to October 2020, Remake Learning will engage youth, families and educators with workshops and other events to encourage critical conversations about the future of learning.
