Democratic schooling may be the most radical experiment in education of the past 100 years.
Danielle M. Villegas's insight:
I found this thanks to @innovativeedu on Twitter. This sounds a lot like a school my son might thrive in! It's definitely an interesting concept. Also reminds me of the prep school that Auntie Mame sent young Patrick to in "Auntie Mame" and "Mame" respectively. (I think I've seen those movies a few too many times.) It might also sound like a Lord of the Flies scenario if there weren't adults to moderate things at the school. Anyway, it'll be interesting to see if and how this might affect current educational thinking, and how it's related to the mobile revolution and the flipped classroom discussions.
I like this article as it shows a few things: 1) Alternative teaching/thinking outside the box for a personalize experience. 2) It's a good use of gamification in learning. 3) There is some flipped classroom learning going on as well. Having a son who is Asperger's and recently asked to go on Minecraft after participating on Roblox for a long time, I'm thinking it might be worth the investment. While he can read very well, and he has good ideas, his writing needs some help. Perhaps this might be the key for him or others who need a differrent way of learning.
Scientists have been making some major breakthroughs that have gone a long way in explaining both how the brain functions and how we use it to organize, recall, and acquire new information.
I still don't agree with the idea that there are no "learning styles", but all the rest of this makes a whole lot of sense! I've seen it in myself as a student, as well as seeing it in my Aspie son as well. As mobile become more prolific, I hope that more educators take all this into consideration! --techcommgeekmom
