Contributive learning develops self-understanding, connection, knowledge, and competency. When these come together, we add to the world. And that leads to well-being, meaning, and fulfillment.

This is the heart of the Contribution Kit––10 modules from The Learner First that guide teachers and students to contributive learning. Each module has ideas and strategies you can use with your students in a remote learning or classroom environment. The activities can be adapted to help students of any age:

  • Understand themselves,
  • Form meaningful connections,
  • Better access your curriculum, and
  • Use what they’re learning in life-changing ways.

In this new and uncertain reality for educators, these modules will help teachers slow down and focus on what really matters for kids and the world.
