I want to live in a “TYPE III” World! A world where our kids, in their confidently engaged, personal and collaborative adventures, in the exploration of new way to contribute to our world; new ways to create new gifts to offer, open source, to each other such that we are lifted up into even more flourishing and thriving, than we can imagine; where TYPE IIIs explode into the community, new organic and contributive enterprises, yielding an overabundance of gifts to be celebrated in their contribution to the well-being of all of us.
In order to Understand TYPE IIIs, you have to understand The Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM)., her beautiful sisters and brothers , TYPE Is, and TYPE IIIs. View Video.
And, the real magic is that all we have to do is co-create an environment for our children to be unfettered in their natural spirit of adventure, exploration and discovery. Apply that golden question to our children, and watch them manifest our dreams into a world that we have been, up till now, unable to imagine.
See UCONN, Schoolwide Enrichment Model: http://gifted.uconn.edu/schoolwide-enrichment-model/about_sem/
I see our 98,454 US public schools*, transformed from where they are in 2017, to powerful empowering enrichment environment for kids, in just a few short years, with SEM.
This intentional revolutionizing of our community and national education system would deliver a steady flow of confident, independent, analytical thinking, adventurers and explorers flooding the new marketplace with solution and solving problem explorations in this world, and in the process, transforming us culturally, societally in exciting and consistently emerging good ways.
Another shining example that I have come across is, The Princeton Learning Cooperative http://princetonlearningcooperative.org/ who are mastering this process of creating enriching learning environments for our High School aged kids, and fueling their unleashing into a lifelong adventure in learning and creating.
