Watch Videos. Share Your Story. Transform Education.

We're here to amplify the voices of people who are actively redefining education.

Education in Transformation (EDiT) is a film platform that shares stories and ideas from the Self-Directed Education (SDE) movement. It features the many flavours of SDE environments: Unschooling and Worldschooling families, Democratic Schools, Agile Learning Centers, Sudbury Schools, Free Schools, and Liberated Learning Centers... just to name a few. What they all have in common is a belief that learning is a natural process and that people flourish when THEY get to determine how their education goes.

    

Who Are We?

We are Pia Janzen and Sierra Allen, passionate learning facilitators and filmmakers. We have travelled extensively, visiting, documenting and learning from radical learning communities around the world. EDiT is our way of sharing the transformative stories we've witnessed. We believe that the thrivability of life on this planet depends on the human ability to return learning to life and life to learning.
