Life Leadership with Alex Urbina – July 28, 2014
On today’s show, Host Alex Urbina sits down with Matt Watson, a SCVi Facilitator, and talks about life long leadership and how SCVi is changing the traditional learning method and excelling in every way.
At SCVi Charter School in Santa Clarita, the learning is project-based. Project based learning is having a curriculum that is surrounded by projects and not just the same learning facts and testing students on those facts.
But ask the students what they are interested in and focus a lesson plan around that and have the kids learn the same values and facts but in a different way.
Today’s youth needs to learn how to learn and how to interact with others and grow as a human being as well as gaining knowledge.
In today’s world just having the knowledge and facts store in your mind is not enough and you must be able to interact with people and have the ability to take charge and connect with others.
“Knowing the state capitals is a great thing to know,” A SCVi Facilitator said. “However, we (SCVi) believe that there is much more than facts that a child should be learning.”
