Create your ideal educational experience using the readings and video clips for this week. Feel free to bring in any additional sources to create your ideal educational experience. The experience can be a school for pre-K, K-12, higher education, corporate training, and more. Consider online options, face-to-face options, homeschooling, new media technologies.
In a 750 word (minimum) essay, first, describe the audience/students you wish to serve. Then describe the experience. Also consider the cost. Is it public or private? Should it be “open” online and, therefore, free? Demonstrate a connection to your readings and any outside sources you select. In demonstrating the connections, you may agree with the readings, or they may serve as a platform for your own ideas, which may argue against the resources.
