Resources for the Revolution
I am always thinking about alternative forms of education because I strongly feel that public schooling is not going to prepare our children adequately for society and the world in general. We are delusional to think that outdated systems and methods that lack backing in terms of research and a foothold on reality are going to be the means to facilitate the development of strong, passionate, motivated, inspirational citizenry for a globalized society.
While the passion may be there and the motivation, we must also make sure we understand the ‘nitty gritty’ of such endeavours. So here are two posts that I found useful. Teacher Tom takes time to discuss his educational philosophy and the workings of cooperatives. And Cooperative Catalyst provides the InciteEd’s tools for a viable learning revolution. I’m game, are you?
