Studio Schools

This short video by Geoff Mulgan is worth watching. It's about the Studio Schools in the UK.

They focus on addressing "the growing gap between the skills and knowledge that young people require to succeed, and those that the current education system provides. Studio Schools pioneer a bold new approach to learning which includes teaching through enterprise projects and real work."

For anyone who remembers how boring school was when it came to parrot fashion learning, this is a breath of fresh air.

And while we're on the subject of Geoff Mulgan, check out this fascinating talk over at the RSA he did recently, about his new book "The Locust and the Bee".
