What is Mind Lab 21?

Mind Lab 21 redefines the 21st century student.

No longer is it enough to memorize and regurgitate lists of facts.

The future will demand more from our kids.

Children with learning disabilities may be at a disadvantage in a traditional classroom, but they are exceptionally well-situated to thrive in a self-directed, project-based, interdisciplinary learning environment.

Working side-by-side, solo or in small groups, each child will have the chance to select a project based on their own interests.

 

The student will follow their own research trail, checking in with the instructor for periodic guidance, and then physically or digitally create a culminating project.

Students will fail, learn from that failure, and try again. They will explore new ideas in a physically and socially safe space. They will give and receive help from their peers.

And, perhaps most importantly, they will re-envision learning as fun.
