Learning Partners Cooperative- a beta test question
Question: Would it be helpful to have a learning partner to plan your nontraditional learning adventures as unschoolers, homeschoolers, DIY etc? If so do you think it is a job that is worth paying for.
As Teachers working inside or outside the system, Would you join a network of other teachers to help create learning plans for non-traditional students or students who are wanting to do passion/project based work outside the class. In both an online capacity and a face to face role? How much would you want to be paid?
I’m envision a cooperative of teachers, mentors, parents, students and/or facilitators who would help students, families, or small groups follow their passions outside of the normal school system or to extend the current school system.
They would help find resources, create individual learning plans, make connections, provide guidance, build relationships and provide an short term or long term partnership with a student or a family. It would be a job and would provide teachers and nontraditional teachers a way to work with students without working in a school day to day.
Love your input!
Thanks in Advance.
