As of Sept, 2015, Mr. Gelston proudly announces the creation of Online Collaborative Learning Programs for teens through the Collaboratory Zone. The Collaboratory Zone supports self-directed and aspiring self-directed teens in designing 21st century learning experiences.
Homeschool and Unschool teens are in a unique situation as distributed learners and collaborators to take the lead in mastering the latest learning skills and technologies. The next generation of leaders will come from those who have developed their own passionate interests, a broad world view, and can execute their vision in a connected world. — Barry Gelston, M.Ed.
