MODELS AND EXAMPLES
Prenda, one of our Nevada microschooling partners, located in Arizona, lists this as their mission and philosophy, “We believe that every human is a natural born learner, explorer, wonderer, and scientist. Our aim is to protect and nurture the natural human desire to learn, progress, and grow. Learners make a choice to see themselves and the world around them in a different way. They know education is not something that happens to you as you sit through a course; it’s a posture, a way of engaging with the world, and it lasts well beyond graduation. Learners know how to learn. They set goals, hold themselves accountable, persist in the face of obstacles, collaborate with others, and develop their unique gifts as they make their dent in the universe. Our role as adults is to set an example of life long learning, provide access to learning tools and experiences, and then get out of the way.”
