DYNAMIC LEARNING THAT MAKES SENSE
Most people are still educated in school classrooms, sitting in neat rows, with a teacher in the front and students dutifully taking notes and then repeating what they learned when test time comes around. There is a place for school. But many people miss out or have unavailable to them inspiring instruction that sets them on a path to flourish as individuals and contribute as citizens. SensibleSchool™ is there for those who fall through the cracks, or don’t fit in. Our courses combine the best of digital content, developed specifically for demanding 21st century learners weaned on smartphones, with personalized instruction from expert mentor-teachers who promote reflection and guide students towards critical, but constructive thinking about important subjects.
CERTIFIED ELEARNING FOR LIFE
Education has three components: credentialing, socialization (including networking), and learning itself. The model upon which much of our educational system has been built, however, included a fourth component: rigid discipline and conformity. While the discipline of a strict timetable mediated by bells and alarms was necessary for turning farm kids into factory workers, it was also dehumanizing—against “life.” And it is increasingly irrelevant in the twenty-first century. Instead, SensibleSchool™ offers education which affirms life, engages people not just at a certain stage, but throughout their life adventure, and creates wisdom-enabled learners to make discerning judgments about themselves and their creative, life-affirming role in the world.
PARENTS OF SCHOOLCHILDREN
SensibleSchool™ offers low-cost courses in economics and personal finance, American government, and American and world history for high school-age students. Ideal for homeschool parents, educational savings account users, or parents who wish their children would receive a better, more commonsense foundation in subjects’ key to a successful life as a citizen. A dual-credit option may be available if college credit is desired.
