The demand for skilled workers is skyrocketing. Workers need new and better skills. Unfortunately education is tied with prisons and churches when it comes to innovation according to Noelle Kellich, Head of Teaching and Learning, and Henry Fairfax, Head of The Revolution School in Philadelphia, which just opened its doors in September. The goal: break the status quo and prepare students for the future of work in an interconnected world. Noelle and Henry helped develop a unique experiential curriculum from the ground up, where students learn algebra, trigonometry, physics, statistics, debate, oral and written communication, critical thinking, and social and legal systems—all by actively investigating and doing. For example, instead of memorizing facts and formulas in the classroom, students learn in the context of the real world: by participating in a study of Philadelphia traffic. Graduates will be able to creatively and confidently think through problems, not just recite facts. It’s time to DREAMS big: Diversity, Resilience, Engineering, Arts, Math, and Science. Listen now as Noelle and Henry share the “secret sauce” for educating students and workers for a future world.
