It’s Time For Change
Our current education model, created for the time of the industrial revolution has not changed or kept up with our ever-changing world. It is time to change things up and teach our young people how to use the technologies of the 21st century along with how to use their voices to make a difference in their world.
All courses at Unlearn Academy will offer a model that focuses on working on global competencies that are required to be successful in our ever-changing world of work. These include critical thinking and problem solving, innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship, learning to learn/self-awareness and self-direction, collaboration, communication, global citizenship, and sustainability
Students will work on things that matter to them by finding issues in their world that break their hearts, they will research those issues in-depth, they will create solutions to those problems, they will connect and network with people in their communities and they will implement their solutions and make a difference.
They will become social change makers.
Founder, Unlearn Academy
Our public education system is one of the best in the world and I believe in it wholeheartedly. However, in any big institution change can take some time, and while change is being made, it is not being made quickly enough for my own children. With our ever changing world I want my own children to have the opportunity to work on Global Competencies that are needed in our modern world.
- critical thinking and problem solving
- innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship
- learning to learn/self-awareness and self-direction
- global citizenship and sustainability
This is why I’m proud to present Unlearn Academy, an online community connected school for the next generation of social change makers.
