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

Storyboard 84—Click for a mentor

SB Worried mother knuckels 15554194 1Pre-GMnavy.go model, there may be students, no doubt, who will heed Wagner's insight (see "Comment 2" in exhibit "X") and go out and find a mentor.

The reality (pre-GMnavy.go), of course, as most parents could explain to the gentleman, is that students generally do not go out looking for mentors.

● However, upon advent of The Model, students en masse will gain background experience in STEM-related derivatives and in endless other topics and fields as well. As students become versed in a topic such as ASIC or combinatorics, they might then, and at the click of a mouse, be motivated to link to a specific-interest expert or mentor—with which our nation is overflowing, professionals proficient in every field and in every subspecialty of every field imaginable.

● An interest-specific mentor might help a student develop a skill, master a homework problem . . . or learn to read. Mentors at the reader's icon, for instance, will be but a click away.

● Parenting can be the ultimate challenge. Via the GMnavy.go model, parents, too, from the highest socioeconomic class to the lowest, may seek a mentor. See "Mentors for parents" in the "parents' and guardians' door."

 

Also available will be The Model's mentors-for-years program (a subtopic in exhibit "N") for any K-12 student thus inclined and, with the help of a parent or guardian, for any child in the early childhood years.
