Hang on a second while we grab that post for you.
This public media "authentic fiction" sought to crowdsource perspectives about education today. The Zed Omega teens, played by actors, "dropped out loud" from high school -- catalyzing open discussion about the structures and purpose of traditional education and its alternatives. The arc of each Zed Omega character was unscripted: they responded to ideas that people presented. The collaborative thought experiment and "interactive documentary" was live on social media during fall semester 2012. (-Learn more-) (-Credits-) (-Facebook-) (-Twitter-)

Complete this thought: “School is….” Zed Omega Nora photographed this whiteboard left at HIGH SCHOOL ME at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.
Talking about the future, with Nora Rose Melendy.
Look how cool this story is!! A homeschooled girl who started her own jewelry business and used the earnings to pay for college. She graduated with her B.S. in business at age 18. Wish it was me. Maybe I can start a little boutique…? ~Nora
Ed Zed Omega updates! We have another event at the Walker this week!!
And college….what should I do about it?
Take a look at this article. It’s so silly. MN Office of Higher Ed, you can’t tell people not to learn things just because the instructor isn’t paying you!
I didn’t even know about Coursera before (the site that has lots of free college courses), but now I might sign up!
My mom showed me this article and this is what she said, “Funny thing is, Minnesotans are just told not to use it, there isn’t a physical/technological restriction. I bet this just increases the use by folks in MN!!!” I agree. Check it out!
I’m standing on the Island of College… College is still really possible…
