Welcome to Ed Farm! We are glad you’ve taken the time to visit our brand new website and learn more about how we are Cultivating Change in Birmingham and beyond.
Ed Farm envisions an inventive world where all people have access to everything they need to fill or create the jobs of the future. To achieve this vision, we equip educators in schools and communities with innovative tools and strategies that support active learning for all students.
Our team strives to achieve three goals through our work. They include:
We achieve these goals through our three signature programs: Teacher Fellows, Pathways, and Student Fellows. You can learn more about these programs by exploring each subpage and by regularly visiting our Stories page. We aim to communicate the impact of our work by telling the stories of the people we work alongside everyday. People like Ebonee English-Finley, a teacher at Minor Elementary who is using innovative teaching strategies on a daily basis to facilitate deep learning with her students.
We are in the early days of our journey, and we know we have so much to learn. We believe in complementing the great work of other organizations and institutions rather than competing with them. If we truly want to create a world in which all people have access to everything they need to fill or create the jobs of the future, then we must abandon our silos and find creative ways to work together. We will continue to share real stories of collaboration on our website and social media channels so our friends, stakeholders, and partners can hold us accountable to our commitment.
We hope you will continue to explore Ed Farm’s work and help us uncover what is possible in our schools and communities. If we want to ensure young people and adults alike are equipped with the digital skills they need to be successful in the future workforce, then it will require an all-hands-on-deck approach.
Let’s continue to innovate and learn together. Let’s Cultivate Change.
