mindSpark Learning: Create Bravely! with Peter H. and Paul A. Reynolds

  • thinkSpace

Peter and Paul Reynolds, mindSpark Learning and FableVision Learning will deliver a message focused on: learning for the sake of discovery. Creating bravely is about having the courage to challenge your environment, and find new ways to learn that go beyond traditional thinking and curricula. Create Bravely focuses on providing learners of all levels with the confidence to attempt the unexpected, and accept that failure is a part of the creative process -- that it is okay to fail -- and that failure should even be celebrated. By failing, learners grow, find solutions and ultimately discover the ability to do things they previously thought were impossible.

Participants will work together to create strategies that help them tap into their own creativity and use it as an implementable tool that engages their learners with deeper learning. They will also have the opportunity to use and interact with some of the tools FableVision Learning has to offer, such as Fab@School Maker Studio and Animation-ish. Finally, participants will leave the event with strategies learned throughout the morning, and discover creative and implementable solutions for next school year, their daily life and beyond.

Happy Dreamer Book Launch at the Blue Bunny Bookstore

51LxIrkeSdL._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

New York Times author and illustrator Peter H. Reynolds’s newest picture book Happy Dreamer will hit the bookshelves on March 28. Come celebrate with us at the Blue Bunny bookstore in Dedham Ma. on, Saturday, April 1, from 11:00 a.m.  12:30 p.m.!        

In his Scholastic debut, picture book and creativity guru Peter H. Reynolds brings us a universally poignant celebration of the colorful spectrum of what it means to dream and the many ways to find happy!

After the smash success of The Dot; Ish; Sky Color; and Allison McGhee’s Someday, Happy Dreamer is a profound tribute to individuality, celebrating the different ways we all think, learn and dream, presented honestly and tenderly through Reynolds’ brilliant talents.

Reynolds said, “I want to encourage kids—and grownup kids—to be happy with who they are, and to be confident about what lies ahead.”

While the world tells us to sit still, to follow the rules, and to color inside the lines, Happy Dreamer celebrates all those moments in between when the mind and spirit soar and we are free to become our own true dreamer maximus! In Peter's signature voice and style, this empowering picture book reminds children of how much their dreams matter, and while life will have ups and downs, he enlists readers to stay true to who they are, to tap into their most creative inner selves, and to never ever forget to dream big!

With worldwide sales of his previous titles surpassing 2 million copies, Peter H. Reynolds' latest inspirational book is a perfect gift for graduations, new babies, milestone moments, and any happy occasion throughout the year.

Paul Reynolds Presenting "Library 2.0 Storytelling Workshop" at FAME

Paul Reynolds will be holding a workshop at FAME (Florida Association for Media in Education) Conference on Wednesday, Oct. 19, from 9 a.m.  to noon in the Tangerine room. 

Topic: Library 2.0 Storytelling Workshop

When: Wednesday 9:00 AM-12:00 PM - Tangerine

 

About:
The digital age has rapidly and radically transformed how we live, play, work, and learn, and with it, the notion of the traditional library has been upended. Communities across the nation are grappling with impact on staffing, resources, and, sometimes even debating over the need and funding an “obsolete” institution. 

So, how do we explain the increased value of the modern library to the general public? In Paul’s return appearance at FAME, he will lead a hands-on creative brainstorming session to create stories – with you and your colleagues - that help articulate and broadcast the urgent message that the modern library has increased and critical relevance in a rapidly changing world. 

How can we convey the notion that the library as a mission-critical beachhead for innovations and creativity in our schools and communities?
