I just want to put my feelers out here on Mothering... To see if any of you feel the same way!
I dream of starting an International Homeschooling Academy where we get lessons online to teach our kids-- and have international group/class outtings to places to learn "In Real Life!" So imagine, this month we are learning about animals in the Amazon and we, internationally, take a trip to Brazil, with an awesome teacher (and parents depending on the age of our kids), and explore and learn first hand!
This could apply to so many areas of the world and life (think NASA, pyramids, China, etc, etc), give us the power to be a new International community breaking borders and barriers- making amazing, life-long global friends- and truly experience and learn the world unlike our generation or generations before us. We would even do community events inviting each global class room to places around the world- Think Prom at an international setting. Our kids would be growing up with a set of friends, and sharing experiences with them, they would be in the same classes and have so much to share.
Imagine what a group of children growing up in such an enirovnment could accomplish and envision?
Combine that with today's technology, we could be creating something really great.
So I wanted to SEE and ASK if there are any of you out there, or you KNOW someone who would be interested in starting such a school- I need logistical help- Registrations, Management... first, then I would like to find some exquisite and inspired board members.
Oh Yes, It's Called: The Oriion Academy
