It's late in the evening, feeling sleepy, so won't write up a long post. This video jarred me into a more awake state, though! It's an enlightening look at what education could be if turned over to the student(s). I get excited to see such activity! Please watch:
If Students Designed Their Own Schools
I am struck that the "administration" views this method of learning as novel. The teachers seem surprised at the engagement of the students and the outcome of the experience. A very loud message is not-so-hidden in there.
The tricky part for unschoolers/homeschoolers is arranging group activities like that which is demonstrated in the video. It's awesome.
It is my fervent wish that every single child could experience learning in a similar fashion. Our world would sincerely benefit from such interest and passion.
