PIE is Humanizing Schooling
People in Education is a digital media arts program committed to humanizing schooling by facilitating space for connection, curiosity and reflection.
We partner media artists-in-residence with classrooms to facilitate student-led community investigations, which culminate in collaborative media projects. We offer a yearlong teacher training program called the Rida Institute, through which teachers gain the skills to nurture authentic youth voice and leadership in their classrooms. Additionally, we work with a team of youth researchers who engage in participatory action research methods to explore our mission of humanizing schooling.
