1-Teacher Schools

Typically, 1-teacher schools are viewed as relatively backwards due to lack of resources, but research shows that teachers at such schools can have stronger, fuller, and deeper relationships with their students, and that the students can be more autonomous and in control of their own learning while still more supportive of and cooperative with their peers. Technology can provide connectivity, eliminating some resource constraints. We go further, using new learning methodologies and technologies to build upon the strengths of 1-teacher schools, creating models of learning environments to serve as exemplars not only for rural education, but also for large urban environments.
