Episode 16: Learning through Authentic Work
Show Notes

My good friend and co-host of Season 2 of a Revolution in Education, Jim McCue, and I were blessed to have three students from Barrington High School join us as a team in the production of this podcast series.  Jack Culton, Xan Maddock-Mark, and Hunter Kuchenbaur, joined us in this effort.  One thing we both deeply believe is that youth should learn about the world, explore their interests, and pursue their passions through authentic activity in the world.  In this podcast, Hunter references a quote from a former One Stone student who says, "Why are you preparing for me to be in the world when I want to be in the world right now." Jim and I both believe that engaging youth in real-world, authentic activity is the best way to assist and support youth in exploring and discovering their potential interests as well come to discover, develop, and pursue their skills in making a difference in the world.  Having Jack, Xan, and Hunter become the production team for our podcast, as well as the primary designers of our website and architects of our social media pursuits, and for us to work AS a team not only benefited us ... but we hope them too.  Which you can hear about here.  Take a listen!
