The Acton Academy

The Acton Academy | SpargoEducation | Scoop.it

Home page for the ultra-progressive Acton Academy in Texas - inspired by the findings of Sugata Mitra and Salman Kahn. This is a model for progress - they are actively testing approaches to learning and making public their findings.

Scott Spargo's insight:

I do suspect that they are not reporting their findings in a completely open and unbiased fashion - they are clearly interested in education as a business. This does not detract from the appeal of the approach and the success they have experienced.
