Reflecting on our past, present, and future ideas of Education
At Uschool, we hope to promote more autonomy in education by empowering learners and their families to fearlessly blaze new learning paths and tap into their talents and passions earlier. We do this with personalized Family Adaptive Learning Plans that build an education around each learner and family, matching them with a dedicated credentialed Learning Advisor who offers trusted support grounded in love and respect.
👊 We ALL have a responsibility for and vested interest in the learners of today, as they will become the leaders of tomorrow. 🙌
This series of interviews focuses on successful innovators, leaders, and trailblazers who are working in different industries and career paths. We want to drill down into their life and educational experiences that helped them get to where you are today.
Intro to the Episode
In this show we get to talk with one of my favorite people. Kyle Thompson is a musician, artist, DJ, digital art and music creator, and community creator, leader, innovator and influencer. Kyle and I dropped out of college to go on the road with our band Belizbeha in the mid 90s (this was pre youtube, MP3s, spotify, even pre personal computers for a lot of us!) Kyle talks about his upbringing and the opportunities that really fostered his creativity and how he uses that to bring joy to people.
