Getting Students’ Hands Dirty
StageW is finding innovative ways to make Wisconsin education the best in the world. What if, instead of just learning geometry on the blackboard and from books, kids experienced geometry by helping solve real-world problems confronting Wisconsin businesses every day? This would provide students a virtual experience to get their hands dirty and give them a potentially life-changing opportunity to explore apprenticeships that teach them the key skills they’ll need for future jobs and for life.
StageW wants to bring learning to life by making it more experiential and relevant through new kinds of virtual apprenticeships. That’s why we’re advocating a plan that connects Wisconsin businesses to Wisconsin schools by rolling out the new WisTalk Learning Channel. WisTalk delivers guidance from experts right to the classroom so kids can learn real-world skills that reinforce the teaching curriculum. This will help Wisconsin businesses grow by attracting new talent to their industry.Can you think of a time and place where you received guidance from experts that changed the course of your life? If so, perhaps this idea is worth exploring.
StageW believes it’s possible for all kids in Wisconsin schools to benefit from 21st century learning. If you agree, share our plans with your friends; like our Facebook page and help us spread the word by inviting your friends to like our Facebook page, too.
