Every pupil is a teacher
A boarding school in Russia shows how successful peer-to-peer learning is! It shifts the paradigm away from year levels and the concept of a person's chronological age dictating curriculum. Children design their own curriculum based on their interests.
Children are given responsibility for their own education, learning together and teaching each other in small groups of mixed ages (8 and 17 years) and covering the entire high school syllabus in a year or two, while also managing the school, its administration, meals, maintenance etc all by themselves. While this school differs to Alithia Learning (such as it is more structured and relies on technology), it opens our eyes to a successful approach to education.
