This TEDxBratislava video features Gever Tulley, world-renowned author, TED speaker, and founder of Brightworks — a one-of-a-kind innovative school in San Francisco, California (U.S.). Tulley is a self-taught computer scientist with no formal education who holds multiple technology patents. He has taught workshops and made presentations to both kids and adults around the world. In 2005 he founded a summer program called Tinkering School in order to learn how children become competent and to explore the notion that kids can build anything–and through building, learn anything. That experience led to the 2011 opening of Brightworks, a unique school that reimagines K-12 education. By taking the best practices from both early childhood education and hands-on, project-based experiential learning, the school strives to meet students’ needs in a flexible, mixed-age environment that breaks the traditional walls between school and the community outside the classroom.
