The work is finding the spark and layering on education.
No matter who you are, something gets you excited. If we could find that passion, amplify it, then develop learning opportunities to further that passion, then we win. We empower students to be curious, self-directed and authentic.
First, we need to give educators the space they deserve to make student work possible.
If we can do both those things, we’ll end up with school environments that are self-correcting. Students will be actively problem solving around issues they see. Not because it’s their job, but because it’s their community, they feel ownership and when given the opportunity, they want to make their community better!
Right now they just don’t have the chance.
Self correcting students and educators empowered to make decisions and take creative risks is our only hope. What better vessel is there for activating human potential at scale?
