LEARNING PHILOSOPHY

Our learning designs emerge from the local context, honoring languages, traditions, and cultures as well as in our belief in youth-directed learning, participatory research, and community-centered video ethnography:

  • Local knowledge and voice are foundational to authentic learning
  • Community connected themes encourage critical and creative expression
  • Youth have the capacity to direct their own learning and author their own stories

METHODOLOGY

Video becomes a powerful tool to position youth as researchers of their own communities, which provides us a unique lens for viewing the world. Our methodology centers on how video captures:

  • The agency of youth as they shape their own social environment
  • The language, traditions, customs, and cultural knowledge of indigenous youth and families 
  • The use of analytical tools to assist in dissecting social, cultural, and political realities
