Eat Local, Learn Local
In much the same way that healthy food comes from your town, we believe that a good education can only be given in small doses.
The Computer Solution
The world simply does not look like neat and orderly rows of quiet students.
But here’s the thing, it doesn’t look like disorganized couches and talking, either!
Students are not raised to learn from teachers in a classroom of 20-30 other students any more.
Perhaps it is a result from social education – but now education does not happen when it is social.
Too easily distracted, too connected to people, too pumped full of hormones — it doesnt matter the reason!
Students already pick and choose who they will listen to information from, so why not use that and allow students to choose who to learn from? Funnel the repetitive, factual information through a computer (which is a computer’s specialty) with a personalized program (brown haired teacher or blonde, male or female), and use real, live human beings and conversation to children at an age that they can actually interact with.
In our new educational design, education (not socialization, not sports, not community activities, but education) will take place solo on a computer.
But What About Socialization?
The problem with public school is not that kids interact with each other – it is that they do so largely unsupervised and without appropriate examples during a time when they are supposed to be learning.
