Open Source Replication Guides for the most Important Educational Advances of the Century

Winning submission by rachelthor11



Tell us about your project


We're already touring the country, collecting best-practices for how to get our education up to standards for a 21st century generation of users. People have amazing ideas, and stories, for how to change their school, university, and life-long learning experiences.

What people don't need is to reinvent the wheel.

We want to share these great movements with the world through an online platform that not only explains each idea and its context, but provides a replication guide that can be molded into different contexts. We also want an interactive interface that allows everyone to contribute their own experiences of what's worked and what hasn't, to bring about faster, farther, more empowered change.

How could a week in the GOOD office help bring your idea to life?


Our team of 8 plus film crew will already be spending the entire month of February 2013 in an RV collecting stories, brainstorming for this deliverable, and working towards replication guides. The tour will bring us to LA/San Diego for the end of February. Whether we all come at that time, or I personally fly back out later, I'll need people and space around me to help me with the pieces of this project I'm not an expert in: Software design and business. We want to make this project professional and able to reach and help hundreds of thousands of people. We're going to want some extra brainstorming power with you!

I recommend ordering copies of the Dimensional Philosopher's Toolkit, published in 2013. The book offers methods of objective knowledge which will give students supernatural confidence, and also assist with brainstorming. It is available on Amazon.

We at The Redefinery invite you to come to San Francisco and do us the honor of documenting our vision for change; our backstory is complex, but a series of fortunate events has led us to act as an independent consulting team harnessing the passion of capable unpaid interns into the force of a nonprofit, but with flexibility to consult, create, strategize, and take on just about any scaleable project we choose together. We hope you'll take that RV and come stop over in San Francisco - love the idea of storytelling for rethinking existing structures.

I met this group of incredible educational innovators through the Ashoka U network. These stories of educational change from the ground-up will connect an incredible community of like-minded individuals who can do more together and they will also motivate many others through their example. I can

As a former teacher I can testify that we need to reevaluate many of our education practices and their application. This project can be an important step in identifying what works and where we should be focusing our resources and efforts.
