Summary

#mkamayterm

What happens when learning at school is more like working at a startup? No homework. No grades. No exams. No scheduled class periods. No "teachers". A starting point and ending point. A space to gather and work. Opportunities to expand networks and gain experiences. Near continuous feedback. Guidance. If this sounds more like the “real world” and less like “school,” then perhaps schools are not following the wisdom of John Dewey who stated that school must reflect life, and life must reflect school. This panel of students and educators from Montclair Kimberley Academy's Startup 101 program will share successes and challenges for this 2 year old program on entrepreneurship and leadership.
