Learning Dreams launches new Web site
Learning Dreams, a unique program that supports a culture of learning in homes and communities, has just launched a new Web site. Learning Dreams is based on the research that learning is fundamentally anchored in the home and community (not school), and that parents must be involved in their own learning (not simply supporting their children). Through creative, community-based support for learning, families who are motivated by their own dreams create the energy that propels them successfully into the world of learning. The new site features a blog, written by Learning Dreams Director Dr. Jerry Stein and staff, that focuses on the practices, ideas, and foundations of the emerging field of community learning. The site also includes details about the Learning Dreams program, a community learning directory for people to find local educational resources, and videos highlighting participants and partners in the program. Learning Dreams is housed in the School of Social Work in CEHD.
