kid-ucate

“kid-ucate” is a digital learning platform developed and maintained by kids, empowering them to own their own learning experience through active hands-on practice. Kids connect with other learners around the world together sharing, inspiring, and together building the classroom of the future. Daily questions are posted inviting response through words, drawings, or built objects. Kids can unlock content by contributing their own ideas, listen to other responses, and hear lessons from experts.

Through developing kid-ucate we seek to create an environment free of standardization and the stresses of a rigid curriculum. We want to empower kids by encouraging sharing and promoting personalized learning. We want kids to learn by doing and find motivation in sharing with each other; and above all instill the idea that no passionate pursuit is above another.

I believe this passionately: that we don’t grow into creativity, we grow out of it. Or rather, we get educated out of it.” -Ken Robinson
