making education

From Newsweek:

High Tech High, located in San Diego, was founded 14 years ago by a coalition of local business leaders and educators and has since grown into its own district of charter schools, including three elementary, four middle, and five high schools as well as a graduate school of education. High Tech High is just one example of the push towards integrated, design and maker-based curriculum in elementary and high schools. Albemarle County Public Schools, a 27-school district serving nearly 13,000 students around Charlottseville Virginia, is developing computer classes that will allow students to model and make physical objects as well as projects that will foster integrated learning between subjects like science and history.
