The MacArthur Foundation backed the Digital and Media Learning Hub (University of California Humanities Research Institute) to re-imagine the experience of education and schooling. In the last 5 years they have spent close to $500 million in research. Connected Learning is the outcome.
They commissioned me for a series of short films to bring the sense of the courageous & transformational findings to film.
MENTOR is one of the films in the series. Here is the main Connected Learning FILM.
The true influence of mentorship is so very human, and its ability to validate another is beyond powerful. Teacher or not, this film might leave you wondering if you have a part to play in the life and education of another.
SAD NOTE : Brother Mike passed away unexpectedly in his sleep in December 2014. Aged just 38.
One / ‘Might we all have the opportunity to mentor another?’
Two / ‘How powerful is a single moment of validation to a young imagination?’
Three / ‘Might your influence travel further than you might imagine?’
Four / ‘Teacher or not, might you have a part to play in the education of another?’
