"We centered too narrowly a definition of 'learning' which doesn't allow us to identify & support all the competencies that young people build naturally... all the ways young people learn." @KarenPittman of @KPCatalysts @forumfyi on #FutureOfSmart #podcast

And we need to continue to identify where our efforts for the positive are contradicted by continued disparities, bigotry, and trauma created for young people in communities. I'd love to hear your take.

A spotlight has been placed on the desperate need for more adult youth workers to recognize the signs & know where to seek help for #youngpeople facing trauma or #mentalhealth crisis. Some tools & great programs have already been created, but we need to continue to lift them up..

Enjoyed @KatherinePlog ’s reflection this week. It had me recall why we cannot just rely on classroom-time to create a #WholeChild & whole person experience, but we have to have a whole community system to support and maintain it.

@KatherinePlog ponders how pushing pause on schooling for real-life opportunities does not have to mean pushing pause on school credits.

@DrPamelaCantor ’s answer -- any relationship that is strong enough to release oxytocin has a protective value that a child brings into their next encounter.
