project based learning....
The idea is that education should and must be hands on. Do real things and you will remember what you have learned for a lifetime. We learn faster, more thoroughly and retain learning longer when we use what we learn in real situations of making and doing real things that have real purpose. Project based learning is the next best thing, and a far cry from what most American kids get in school.
You can fix things for your own kids. Take matters in your own hands. Fix, make, create, cook, sow, sew, harvest a lifelong love of learning in your own home and workshop. You can do with your kids and their hands what schools don't and won't until we have a true awakening to the value of hands-on learning.
