Funding Priorities

Remake Learning grants support innovative learning practices, projects, and environments that advance our common vision and six key funding priorities:

Activate critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, communication, and collaboration

Preparing students for an increasingly technology-driven future. Empowering them to identify and solve problems, but not be afraid to fail, retry, and learn from their mistakes.

Challenge learners to question, examine, and dissect social systems

Helping students develop confidence and address inequalities while building a more just and equitable world.

Connect all the places learners live, work, and play

Bringing together schools, libraries, museums, parks, clubs, community centers, centers of faith, and more in face-to-face and online environments.

Encourage learners to explore and play

Supporting students as they follow their curiosity using varied tools - including but not limited to technology.

Derive from deep and caring relationships

Learning from and modeling positive relationships between learners and their families, peers, educators, and mentors.

Connect learners to their communities

Helping learners develop cross-cultural understandings that unlock opportunities to thrive both within and beyond their own communities.
