Learning: The Hero’s Journey

10 de noviembre de 2012   | Vistas: 6 |  

Jeff Sandefer talks about an alternative way of education that intends to replace the incarceration system, where students cannot leave the room until they’ve learn, into a journey where they will be challenged and inspired to learn in a process where the intensity, duration, frequency and community of the learning experience will be different. He comments on the Hero’s Journey applied in Acton Academy and Acton MBA, where the importance is not in the destination of the heroes but in the journey and the experiences they have. Sandefer explains the way students have reacted to this system and what type of parents are required to enter in it. Finally, he shares some sources that parents can search online in order to get more information about the program.
