Listen to The Innovative Educator Discuss UnSchooling on The Future of Education

Today, Wednesday, June 1st, I will be joined by Kate Berring, contributor to The Innovative Educator and author of the blog Skipping School, Monika Hardy, and Clark Aldrich author of Unschooling Rules book and blog  in a panel moderated by Steve Hargadon to discuss unschooling.  

During the show we will discuss
  • Why schools are resistant to change and are stuck in the outdated, industrial mode of education.
  • Essential learning that most high schools forget to teach i.e. authentic evidence of learning captured in real world formats i.e. career or academic portfolios and resumes.
  • Why standardized testing doesn’t work
  • How the principles of unschooling can be applied in school environments.   
The live interview is occurs on Wednesday, June 1st, at 5pm Pacific / 8pm Eastern.  To participate visit http://tr.im/futureofed.
