A Reimagined Model of Learning through a K-Market™ Journey of Development
The Learn to Start Model has been designed to drive a pedagogy capable of developing the whole human being from the beginning of their educational career all the way through their entry into the market in a way that prepares them for market-demands aligned with their passions, interests, and capabilities.
The Learn to Start model starts with the four environments of story, failure, relationship, and mentorship. Story is your ability to tap into and communicate who you are and your ability to connect with the stories of others. Failure is your ability to take risks, experience failure, and embrace the learning experience of that failure. Relationship is your ability to collaborate and connect with others via empathy. Mentorship is your ability to seek out guidance from trusted individuals who have experienced things you have yet to experience.
Students continue to live in the LTS Model environments of Story, Failure, Relationship and Mentorship. Story is communicated through their portfolios. Failure is embraced as they test hypotheses by collecting evidence. Relationships are strengthened through the process of peer feedback. Mentorship is brought outside of the classroom by engaging with local industry partners.
In middle school, the LTS Model now expands to include the Assessment of Core Skills, and the LEARN and DEVELOP Stages.
Students are introduced to the final layers of the model which are the BRAND Stage, Test Metrics, and Start. As students develop their solutions, they learn how to communicate about them by creating branded content and test them using the three test metrics of sustainability, efficiency, and profitability. They START by entering the market.
