“As we reimagine schools, there’s going to be a continued focus on the individual learner. We are thinking a lot right now about relevance. What is the purpose of learning? Why do human beings really learn anything? We seek to create relevant learning experiences for adults and for students, to ignite passions and support more curious and active exploration. At Getting Smart, we all love learning. What’s been a powerful learning experience for you? We seek to do that.”
