At this year’s iNACOL Symposium, Getting Smart CEO Tom Vander Ark had a chance to sit down with co-executive director of Big Picture Learning Andrew Frishman to reminisce about the early years of Big Picture Learning (first started in Rhode Island by Dennis Littky and Elliot Washor) and what it truly means to focus on student-centered learning.
They also discuss how the organization’s mission is the education of a nation “one student at a time.” Listen to Tom and Andrew as they talk about what that means in real terms in schools across the United States.
