Welcome To The Future Of Education! A business plan to recast pre-k-12 education in the U.S

How The Model will help recast pre-k-12 education in the U.S.

Provides free access for students, parents and schools

 Appeals systematically and relentlessly to every young person to come join the fun; and to protect privacy, to join as part of a network restricted to their local school

 Entices students to come meet with their friends, make new friends and perhaps just sit back and have a great time, or - as their expertise evolves - try their hand at publishing concepts, games, simulations and working models

 Encourages students to enter their published content to win weekly contests, awards and scholarships

 Presents - at twelve noon each day! - an "entirely new" site of astoundingly engaging content for a hands-on national audience

 Allows students to learn from other students' work and discuss research and publications with other students

 Enables parents, mentors and subject-specific experts to provide guidance and input to students, helping them take their study and research even further

How The Model will improve America's education system:

 Place the site's unique Reader's icon exactly where it has to be to transform non-readers—whether preschoolers, K-12 students or their parents—to readers

 Position students to discover an infinite range of interests, a key step in building background knowledge for further learning (for instance, potentially addicting to those who happen upon it, "combinatorics," a math branch typically unfamiliar to the young person's parents and teachers, can forever change even a fifth grader's motivation to learn)

 Catalyze students to learn by doing, build an accelerating experience base, fill positions throughout the site...and own the site

 Meld students with real-world learning including first-hand exposure to the STEM subjects

 Provide students with achievements to showcase on college applications and resumes
