< MindBuckets | An EduEcosystem for ALL Kinds of Minds!

Welcome Thinkers & Tinkers!

Welcome to MindBuckets! MindBuckets is an educational advocacy group dedicated to promoting the joy of learning and improving student experiences while strengthening family, school and community partnerships. Neither parents nor schools can do it alone. Our children need multiple opportunities to learn and grow at home, in school, and in the community. MindBuckets' Learning Lab* & Lounge is here to help! 


TIME with us makes school FUN & EASIER for EVERYONE!


*MindBuckets Learning Lab programs are Challeged-Based & Complementary Learning programs

Complementary Learning is a systemic approach which intentionally integrates both school and non-school supports.

Challenge based learning builds on the practice of problem-based learning, in which students work on real world problems in collaborative teams, but with a key difference at the center of challenge based learning is the use of technology and the call to action that inherently requires students to make something happen.

Parents Need to Know Series: Digital Literacy & Personal Learning Environments

  REALITY CHECK! Is your child ready for OUR digital world?
Being able to read is not enough - Digital Literacy is the key for future success.

Many parents are surprised to learn their "tech savvy" students are NOT "digitally literate."  Is your child digitally literate?

In this interactive workshop you will: 

1.) Learn the difference between "tech savvy" and "digitally literate"  

2.) Explore your own & your child's digital literacy skills 

3.) Team with a teacher and build your child's Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) to foster his/her digital literacy.
