Innovative Ideas from Across the Globe


What can we learn from other countries?

In this video they take a look at countries making the big strides when it comes to 21st century learning skills. What happens when kids are teaching kids and no adults are present? In this video they take a look at the project “a hole in the wall”, and the results are staggering. Students are performing better on tests, and they learn by interacting with one another. And that is the main idea here. Empower the kids and let them take the lead in their own learning. Wake up folks; this is how kids learn! From each other. All we have to do is provide the tools. If you are looking for creativity this is the way to go.What if kids were actually empowered to be the change they wish to see in the world?
