Self Directed Learning
Imagine schools incorporating every child’s interest into the learning curriculum. Just make sure to temper your imagination with a dose of reality because BrightOS education program is making this real. With BrightOS, students don’t need to ask Why do I need to learn this? Instead, they show you how things get done. Everyone is gifted and/or talented in some way. With BrightOS, education mentors focus on strengths, guiding students into successfully achieving their future goals.
The program remarkably engages students at their own level of interest, then fully supports their goals by training and teaching them how to use a menu of technology skills and media tools to make their dreams and interests come to life. Through a mentorship program, students single-handedly [and successfully] develop project proposals, incorporating their interests and technology components to realize their goals.
You could say the BrightOS education program engages, enlightens and empowers students’ work in every possible way. With this program, the students are made aware that their goals are achievable regardless of age. They will learn everything they need to know while following their passion with their whole heart. Colin Gibson’s project-based learning success is proof that this education program does really work.
Colin Gibson, a thirteen-year-old student at Seabury School, has achieved what many kids his age would only dream of. He’s an animator and programmer rolled into one, with many animations and computer games to show for it. In one very popular animation that he created, “Good and Bad Schools,” Gibson depicts the disparities between conventional learning curriculum and the Bright Open Source education program that aims to address the pressing need to understand and speak the language of our modern digital age.
Kids like Gibson, through the BrightOS education program, have successfully started businesses of their own, developed animations, become engineers, interactive media artists, sound and video designers, scientists, writers, comic book artists, coders, and so on. BrightOS helps them develop their ‘big picture’ at an early age, through the help of technology and integrated arts. Gibson also has a blog as well as a YouTube page where he showcases his impressive experience, growth and contributions thanks to the Bright Open Source program.
