The Impact of Lifelong Learning with the GripTape Challenge

The Impact of Lifelong Learning with the GripTape Challenge

GripTape is an initiative committed to putting young people in the driver's seat of their learning. They create opportunities for youth to follow their passions — as inventors, designers, and producers, actively constructing their path for success and supporting other young people to do the same. The GripTape Learning Challenge is a call to action to youth to design, create, and execute their own learning journeys.

What you’ll learn in this podcast:

  • Why the way formal schooling traditionally functions can be an impediment to the development of agency
  • The "supports" that adults often put in place in service of helping youth to develop and learn run counter to the development of independence
  • The 3 things young people request to better own and drive their own learning
