What Educators Think
I also wanted to say thank you all for this content. This speaks to me like nothing else I've encountered. I use the SDGs for projects and your program has been a gem in this rough time of distance teaching.
At the end of this project, my students were saying things like, "I feel like I can do anything now!", "I want to be a designer!" and, "I never thought I could do this, but I did it and it feels so great!"... things I never imagined I would hear."
They never wanted to miss a day from the project. They gave up their free time to do more than they had to. They were thinking critically and problem solving. They made a difference in our school community.
