What Could Facilitated K-8 Learning Look Like?

When it comes to facilitated learning, the teacher enables the most engaging learning possible. Although this might sound like jargon, here is just one simple scenario that characterizes why this is a huge game changer. Scenario: Everything students read in the first few formative years of reading is written by students in the next older age group. The older students write things like: personal health guidelines, technology instructions, imaginative fiction and how math as a language works. Older students are assessed on composition and actual user experience by the younger students. Younger students are assessed on reading use and moves to next levels of challenge.

This is a very simple, albeit incredibly disruptive innovation that does nothing but facilitate far higher levels of engagement and relationships across age groups and can continue on all levels of education. And it can apply as well to how onboarding and cross-training can work in organizations.
