“Era taught us – that students learn better when they are engaged through experience to find their passion, the relevance of education. For those of you who have yet to watch this engagement unfold in a classroom or lab, an art studio or a visit to a stream or farm, it is a beautiful thing to see.” #edjourney: A roadmap to the future of education
