The MET School: Connections and Friendships

The MET School, which is actually a collection of six schools in Providence, Rhode Island, is an inspirational place to learn - and an inspirational place to teach. There will be more posts coming up about the various elements that make up schooling in this innovative, small-school environment, where non more than 120-150 kids are led in groups of 12-17 students by advisors. No 'teachers' in sight.

To whet your appetite, just listen to Lael as she explains how she has gone from high school drop out to a successful graduate of events and sports management interning with the New England Patriots. (Also available in Google Video)

I am hesitating to even call these schools, maybe more along the lines of learning brokerage houses. I live in a rural area and am finding it difficult imagining what folks here can do demassify the current and massively consolidated system in favor of what The MET School has done although I find it inspiring to try. Thanks for the video, too.

Module Masterclass

School leaders and innovators struggle to make the most of educators' and students' potential. My team at NoTosh cut the time and cost of making significant change in physical spaces, digital and curricular innovation programmes. We work long term to help make that change last, even as educators come and go.
