Workspace Education Broadens Independent Learning Options

Workspace Education, a Bethel-based nonprofit community focused on project-based learning for families, is an open source education model that caters to all types of learners by maximizing choice and flexibility. To that end, they are introducing two drop-off options in the fall of 2018. One is a traditional micro-school, Workspace: Golden Arrow. The second is an entrepreneurial, self-directed Acton Academy model. 

Workspace Education joins a growing network of Acton Academy affiliate schools worldwide. Implemented as a microschool within Workspace Education’s walls, the Acton Academy at Workspace welcomes independent learners who will benefit not only from the inquiry-based journey of the Action curriculum, but also the creative sandbox that is Workspace. The methods of learning include self-paced challenges, e-learning and educational technology, hands-on and quest-based learning, and more. Children will create and maintain personal goals, relational covenants and real-world work. Kids will learn to mentor and be mentored by one another. Mixed-age spaces, portfolios and exhibitions instead of grade expectations also set the model apart from traditional educational settings.

Parents and students can track academic progress; access portfolios with rough drafts, photos, video and other creative work; and present work to experts, customers or the public in exhibitions.
