The Clubhouse learning approach
LEARNING BY DESIGNING
People learn best when they are actively engaged in designing, creating, and inventing, not just passively receiving information.
FOLLOWING YOUR INTERESTS
When people care about what they are working on, they are willing to work longer and harder, and they learn more in the process.
BUILDING A COMMUNITY
When people collaborate with others of diverse ages, cultures, genders, and backgrounds, they gain new perspectives for understanding the world—and themselves.
FOSTERING RESPECT AND TRUST
In places where everyone’s ideas and opinions are respected, people are more likely to take risks and experiment—and thus more likely to learn and innovate.
