The Whole Life Learning Center is education outside the box. Now in its 7th year, the Center serves more than 100 families in Austin, Texas. Michael will describe the Center’s model of Whole Life Learning.
“Life is interconnected, dynamic, and evolving. Though we ensure our learners can engage the constructs of living in a complex world (it takes reading, math and writing to do that), our curriculum also blends emergence: we meet each learner right where they are and develop a holistic Learning Plan, based on their inspirations, recognizing the whole child - body, mind, heart and spirit. Inherent in our philosophy is a trust that children, and humans in general, are natural learners, especially when inspiration is nurtured, when core genius is tapped. This is a surprisingly common sense, yet radically revolutionary educational model: Whole Life Learning.”
Michael is the co-founder and co-director of the Whole Life Learning Center. He earned his Master of Arts in SelfDesign degree in August.
