PA STEM Coalition Meeting: A discussion with the authors of “When You Wonder You’re Learning” – Mar 24

Posted by PA STEM Coalition on March 22, 2022

Upcoming PA STEM Coalition: A discussion with the authors of When You Wonder You’re Learning, Gregg Behr and Ryan Rydzewski on March 24, 8:30 AM- 9:30 AM.

Fred Rogers was more than a nice guy in a sweater—he was also a learning scientist who was decades ahead of his time. In this talk, we’ll explore how Fred engineered Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood to develop the “tools for learning” that boost academics and well-being among kids of every background and age. We’ll also discuss how educators can use Fred’s blueprints to nurture those tools today. With examples from Remake Learning, we’ll share inspiring, actionable ways to follow in Fred’s footsteps.
