The social and cultural norms component is huge in shifting to the digital learning experience. The expectations about engagement from the learner and the facilitator/instructor absolutely have to shift. Co-creating these norms I have found helps to boost engagement (i.e. trust, respect etc.). In adult ed spaces I see there is greater flexibility and co-construct the norms than in elementary, secondary and post-secondary ed spaces. When adult learners come into learning spaces, they bring the experiences/expectations with them knowingly but most often times not knowing their power.

Great point out the gate. Students/learners are adults and needed to be treated as such.

I am checking out the power point. I think empowering the students to get involved in civics participation - they are learning in our civics classes.

I was just having this conversation with a student last night whose landlord said he was going to raise the rent after her living there, paying on time, for 17 years
Lisa Morse
01:26:57
These are wonderful - the fact that students voices are being heard must give them a feeling of agency in their own lives.
Keri Marion
01:27:12
and she thinks it's because he noticed how much extra she's been working due to the pandemic
Beverly Keim
01:27:34
Wait - no rent increases for 17 years??
Keri Marion
01:27:37
it would be very empowering
Mark Fernandes
01:27:51
There should be greater funds for Adult Ed to hire necessary Social Workers and Psychologists full time
Keri Marion
01:27:52
we talked about what would be reasonable, what wouldn't be, etc
Marilyn Morton
01:27:54
After the results of the 2020 census we need all sorts of advocacy….especial student ambassadors
Keri Marion
01:28:10
but I think if she saw one of her peers had done in a similar situation would be so great
Lynn LeClaire
01:28:15
Looked at the sick days piece. I thought it was good. Most of my students aren't working now. But in my organization, the teachers are all part time, our hourly pay hasn't been raised in years, and we get no benefits, including no paid time off!

The irony, which I must point out, is the blind indifference and racial bias of Matias program administration ended this student leadership and Americorps program
Marisa Geisler
01:38:32
We are struggling to center or privilege the perspectives of colleagues of color as leaders in our PD; there are so few people of color in our system currently that the same people get asked/invited over and over and it's exhausting to them. Plus it raises concerns of tokenism. I'd love to hear any and all ideas for addressing this.

Another project in Holyoke, MA looked at housing discrimination. Students researched the issue in collaboration with a housing justice community organization and then co-produced an educational video.
Marie Troppe
01:39:33
Silja, do you have a link to the video about housing discrimination in Holyoke?

Nan, are you referring to David Foster Wallace?

yes
Nan Frydland

The water and fish came from David Foster Wallace.
Keri Marion

I'll have to look into that. I've never heard these accusations.

That poll was a great return to all the powerful ideas that have come out of these three workshops. I recognize the importance of turning to our local communities/programs/classes to do a lot of these work, but I’m wondering about those action points that seem more collective based - especially those around advocating shifts in funding levels and purposes and outcomes. How do we build national coalitions?
Jessica Levy
01:45:19
I’d like to know where powerful advocacy is currently happening.
