Social Change Maker Model
Our current education model, created for the time of the industrial revolution has not changed or kept up with our ever changing world. It is time to change things up and teach our young people how to use the technologies of the 21st century along with how to use their voices to make a difference in their world. All courses at R.I.S.E. Academy will offer a model that focuses on working on global competencies that are required to be successful in our ever changing world of work. These include critical thinking and problem solving, innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship, learning to learn/self-awareness and self-direction, collaboration, communication, global citizenship and sustainability Students will work on things that matter to them by finding issues in their world that breaks their hearts, they will research those issues in depth, they will create solutions to those problems, they will connect and network with people in their communities and they will implement their solutions and make a difference. They will become social change makers.
