Designing a New Student Centered Charter School
In a traditional high school, the classroom teacher is the keeper of all knowledge. The student sits dutifully in his / her seat and takes notes, memorizes and shows on a test that he / she has learned what the teacher knows. Yet today, content is everywhere, instantly accessible via the internet most likely more up to date than what the teacher knows. So how does one design a new school which is student centered where the educator is more a facilitator, helping students find and validate original content while at the same time meeting standards.
