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-)

“In creative fields, your real transcript is NOT your GPA – it is your portfolio of projects… The most important part of the transcript of the future will be people’s creative achievements. Employers will not care how much time you have spent in a lecture hall, they will say, “show me the stuff that you have actually built, that shows you actually are creative.”
