Informal Revolutions Collective

A Learning Studio started as a research collective to look into how people support one another in learning together inside and outside of school. I have always been fascinated in think tanks and research collectives, especially ways education shifts away from a factory-learning model into a model of networked learning. I wanted to look at the roles people play in learning together and to design a research collective that could uncover what’s essential to learning.

My thoughts came from experiences of how friends, colleagues and family members had collaborated with me in the past-whether it was being interviewed, giving advice, providing positive support, making connections, editing, hosting a focus group, designing a project, teaching a class, creating a party, sketching out designs for a product or a flyer, taking photos, designing a website and architecture, or simply making jokes.
