LRNG: Columbus

 

    What is LRNG: Columbus?   

The world we live in is changing faster than ever.

 

Our youth of the digital age is offered unprecedented opportunities and new challenges in Columbus and beyond.

 

Learning that is powerful and relevant and links academics to the real world is the path towards connecting what students learn today to what they'll use tomorrow.

 

This is a challenge that no single institution will solve on its own. Our community has come together to connect our youth to the rich learning experiences they need both inside and outside of school to discover and develop their talents and ambitions.

 

LRNG: Columbus is a partnership across our community to ensure all youth have access to creative and academic opportunities in our libraries, museums, parks and other community institutions, as well as access to exciting learning experiences online.

 

By creating opportunities for young people to explore and discover new interests, LRNG: Columbus fosters the curiosity and resilience youth need to thrive in a world of constant change.

Badges

Digital Media & Communications

Digital media is as common as pencils and paper in today's classrooms. However, youth knowledge and ability to navigate these devices are seldom acknowledged in formal settings. This badge allows youth to ignite their curiosity, engage in the world around them, collaborate with their peers, and direct their own thinking and learning.

Creative Economy & Entrepreneurship

The ‘creative economy’ and all that it encompasses, is increasingly important to the 21st-century learner. In a world where the creative industries are becoming vibrant contributors to the economy, youth are increasingly engaging in entrepreneurial endeavours. This badge supports the acknowledgement of the skills and abilities that young people possess that are oftentimes overlooked in formal settings.

Playlists & XPs

 

On LRNG: Columbus you’ll explore Playlists. Playlists are a collection of learning experiences that are connected learning themes that you can dive deep into areas of interest and exploration.

Each learning experience is called an XP; groups of XPs make up the Playlist. You do not have to complete the entire Playlist at one time. You can start, stop, save and start again as many times as you need. When you complete all of the XPs in a Playlist, you can earn a Badge that recognizes your accomplishment.
