We had our first run last week. The schools and the teachers-for-a-day are energized by the results and mostly in working together. They even had some practical feedback. We face two challenges for the upcpming weeks. 1. How do we design and develop a platform that engages en inspires face-to-face collaboration 2. How do we scale this concept from a select group of frontrunners to more teachers-for-a-day and other schools? Keeping it close enough to have the ‘this is my community’ feel. We’ll be posting our findings later on. If you have any questions or critical feedback we can take with us in developing the next steps, that would also be great!

Thank you @Tiffanie Harrison! We started a really small pilot with just a couple of parents and teachers. In a week we start a second pilot with a Foundation that operates 15 K-12 schools in our local muncipality. This is part of a flu season emergency plan. Parent teachers were asked to reply to a simple email with some questions on their experience, need to co facilitate a group and there availability. And if they are able to come in at a moment’s notice. We have someone ready to call everybody they need to make sure no child has to go home. This is great for a start, there’s a lot of energy. But in the long run we need to work out a concept that is low in administrative tasks or overhead, supports communication between schools and their community and have a treasure chest of talented parents they can contact to help make learning a cool adventure for our children.

Thank you Jessica Lura for your comment! This strengthens our team spirit!
