theQuest is a short film on public education and innovation. Statistics show that every 26 seconds, a student drops out of school in the United States. This staggering statistic prompted this film and we began to ask, what can we do better in the public education space? What needs to change?
My friend Robbie Osenga (a public school principal who is passionate about education and innovation) and I had an opportunity to take a trip to Silicon Valley and visit Google, Apple, Microsoft and Comcast’s Innovation Center.
During this trip, we were able to look inside of these companies and talk to some of their developers. The company we were most amazed by was Google.
How and why do they collaborate and innovate so well? How would they do school? What can we learn from their culture? Watch the two short films below to discover what we learned on theQuest…
