Brightworks: An Extraordinary School

"Brightworks is a school that reimagines education. By taking the best practices from both early childhood education and hands-on, project-based experiential learning, we strive to meet students’ needs in a flexible, mixed-age environment that breaks the traditional walls between school and the community outside the classroom. We offer a broad-spectrum learning environment designed to encourage creative capacity, tenacity, and citizenship."

This site is a wonderful resource. Brightworks is a great innovative school found by Gever Tulley, Education Architect. You can read more about him on the Brightworks staff page.


Be sure to also have a look at the Brightworks Arc pages for more detail about the structure employed "... At Brightworks, students explore ideas and pursue their interests through a structure we call an arc. Each arc takes as its premise a central theme, to be explored from multiple perspectives. Students interact with this theme in three different phases: exploration, expression, and exposition." http://sfbrightworks.org/the-brightworks-arc/

The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Tinkering and Maker Education

The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Tinkering and Maker Education | Tinkering and Innovating in Education | Scoop.it

If you have been following my blog series on The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture, you know that I am using this opportunity, given all the press on flipped classroom, to discuss a model of teaching and learning based on experiential education.  It is a model in which authentic, often hands-on, experiences and student interests drive the learning process, and the videos, as they are being proposed in the flipped classroom discourse, support the learning rather than being central or at the core of learning.


The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture [diagram] has four phases:

1. Experiential Engagement: The Activity
2. Concept Exploration: The What
3. Meaning Making: The So What
3. Demonstration: The Now What"

ghbrett's insight:

This is a jam packed article that does a good job of explaining the model and processes of Flipped Learning. The information is backed up with plenty of links to more resources, content, and video media. Well worth reading for tinkerers, educators, and trainers.
