Students are teaching technology skills to parents, and their teacher believes that is how it should be.
At Knapp Forest School, the Gemini Project pilot program ends with students teaching parents the skills they have learned. The Gemini Project was named after the second phase of NASA’s lunar mission, and teacher Matt Meyer says “students are all capable of ‘moonshot’ thinking. And that is the true power of learning.”
The goal of the program is to increase the proficiency of all students so that they can apply technology skills on their own.
Students also taught coding, using Spheros, so that the students could instruct others to write code to make the Spero ball roll, stop, and return.
