Projects

 

We invite all Project Leaders who want to connect with schools to post their projects here to help technologists and K12 teachers of all disciplines find each other and participate in the project.

These are Public Folklore Projects built by the nation.

You will be able to show that your School participates in the project on K12PlayGround.com site.  This allows schools to buddy up and find out who else is doing it too around the country!

Interdisciplinary Projects offered:

 Projects for Elementary, Middle, and High school students that integrate all the core literacies.

Redesign K12 Education

Why is the Department of Education - Industry Model - allowed to exist?

Why not hire design artists to redesign it. Until the department is redesigned, American citizens will never have a K12 curriculum that will be useful.

Dewey tells us unequivocally in School and Society, that the reliance on listening “tells the story of the traditional education”. He repeats this indictment in Democracy and Education:

“Almost everything” about the traditional education, he states there, “testifies to the great premium put upon listening (and) reading . . . It is hardly possible to overstate the contrast between such conditions and the situations of active contact with things and persons in the home, on the playground . . .” ; the fundamental distinction between traditional and progressive education lies may be said to lie in the latter's attempt to recreate the communicative conditions of homes, playgrounds and workplaces.

As one-way, straight-line communications leave no room for response, listeners habituated to them remain passive and lax, irresponsible, thoughtless, fickle, emotionally susceptible, shortsighted, amusement-seeking, and shiftless, imbued neither with courage or energy to speak nor intellectual power to say anything worth listening to.

This makes them incapable of democratic living and vulnerable to despotism. SEE FAKE NEWS

 

American Mythologies: Creating, Recreating, and Resisting National Narratives.

Myths and narratives are constructed, reconstructed, and resisted not only through written texts but in every form of media and within every kind of community.

America has been and still is consistently defined and constituted through national myths and narratives.

It wasn't until 1918 that nationwide compulsory education was in place. The bureaucratic imperative is to turn education into a factory itself.
