How Young People Can Lead Remarkable Lives @ Laura's
How does a young person start a multimillion dollar company, a social movement, engage in doctoral level research, write award winning novels, become a world-class performer or athlete, or gain admission into Harvard or Stanford? We will lead young people and their families through the process of identifying how children can lead remarkable lives well before the age of 18.
We will focus on:
- autonomy in the learning process
- constructing experiences around a young person's needs, goals, and interests
- support young people will need from their families and communities
This session is most appropriate for public, private or homeschooled young people ages 10 and up, and their guardians.
Antonio Buehler founded Abrome to fundamentally change the way the world views education. He wants society to reject the notion that education should be a standardized product in which children are expected to be passive recipients of instruction that is chosen and delivered by adults. Buehler wants learners to be able to direct their own education so they can live rich, fulfilling lives.
