The Independent Project

This story and video has been making the rounds on Twitter and I finally got a chance to watch it and then explore further. Each video is about 15 minutes, but I think they're worth your time. Here's the video that accompanied the Washington Post story:

  1. Hello! My name is Brittney and I am an EDM310 student at the University of South Alabama. First, I just want to say, WOW! I have never heard of the Independent Project until watching this video and I absolutely love the idea and concept behind it. If I was a secondary education major, I would completely be on board for the Independent Project. I do have a few questions. First, is there a teacher/adult sponsor to supervising the students? Second, how are they graded at the end of the semester? Lastly, how are the students selected for the project?
    I'm glad you posted these videos, otherwise, I never would have known about the Independent Project.

    Thank you!
