Rebecca works with school administrators and educators to support students in discovering and developing unique skills and talents that may not be recognized in a conventional education model. This process includes building an inclusive environment and school community capable of receiving and valuing what each individual has to offer.
Rebecca’s presentation on ‘Collective Education’ offers a new model for education as a response to students’ expanding access to information and social media. This model offers astounding opportunities for collaboration and inclusivity. Using examples from new media, including the Marvel Universe and Netflix series, and inspired by the work of Jeff Gomez, Rebecca shows how a new pedagogy is emerging and discusses the ways it challenges well-established systems and traditions.
