During the spring semester of this 2016-17 academic year, senior Anya Smith-Roman and junior Abigail Emerson, of Mount Vernon Presbyterian School, led efforts to create and publish a new journal for education – all originating from the student-learner voice and position. Check out their first publication!
It’s official, the first edition of Trailblazers, a student driven magazine on the Education Transformation Movement, is here with young writers from around the world contributing!!!! My peers in the Innovation Diploma, Abigail Emerson and Kaylyn Winters, and I have been working at this project all year after some last minute edits over the summer, we now feel it is time to ship the idea and get it out into the world.
So please check out our first edition which includes:
A Letter From the Founders
Meet the Curators: Anya Smith-Roman, Kaylyn Winters, Abigail Emerson
The learner-centered movement: Q&A: Sparkhouse Conference
Creating Something New: Brady Vincent
Change is a Conversation: Neel Pujar
Free Ranged vs. Caged: Kim Mi Yeoh
Intelligence: Cali Ragland
Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible!! Can’t wait for issue 2!
