Producer’s Note: This episode had some minor technical difficulties, notably some persisting pops and clicks throughout the recording.
On this episode of the Getting Smart Podcast Shawnee Caruthers is joined by some innovators in Colorado’s Embark Education program. Embark Education is a micro middle school in North Denver embedded in two small businesses – Pinwheel Coffee and Framework Cycles. Embark supports students to courageously inquire, engage, and discover a sense of self in an environment that is learner-centered, integrated, and embedded.
We’re joined by Brian Hyosaka, an Embark Educator and incoming Head of School. Brian is also accompanied by three students today: Maura(6th), Neela(7th), and Lachlan (8th).
