Alliance for Self-Directed Education
Newsletter #8 — 2017-02-10

New Media & New Sponsors!

Dear Allies,

We are thrilled to be sharing this short video, created by Pia Janzen*, in collaboration with the Alliance for Self-Directed Education. Pia approached us back in August after we announced the Alliance and offered to do some visual storytelling while she traveled around the U.S. visiting Self-Directed Education communities. There are plans for more short videos, each based around its own Self-Directed Education theme or frequently asked question. We’d love to know your thoughts on the video, and we hope you find this and future videos from Pia useful in communicating about Self-Directed Education with friends, family, and potential collaborators.

Are you a filmmaker or storyteller who believes in Self-Directed Education? Want to collaborate with the Alliance? Reach out and let us know:

* Pia Janzen —”I’m a traveler and visual storyteller who’s excited to finally have found an education that values the three things I consider important: Freedom, potential, and relationships. I can’t wait to see the impact SDE can make in the world and I’m learning how to contribute to the movement.”
