CALABASAS, Calif., Nov. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MUSE School, a private, non-profit progressive school, and its Blueprint assessment method have been selected by the global education non-profit HundrED for its 2020 Global Innovation Collection. The HundrED 2020 highlights the most inspiring innovations in K-12 education from around the world.
HundrED Academy members recognized 100 innovations from 38 countries. MUSE School's Blueprint was chosen due to its unique pioneering status in the field of education. The Blueprint is a holistic assessment method that challenges traditional approaches by addressing every aspect of a student's learning experience, including their abilities to live and contribute to a sustainable lifestyle.
"Our Blueprint is a 12-page record of each student's unique learning journey and it reflects their progress on MUSE's foundational five pillars," said Jeff King, Head of School. "Rather than percentages and letter grades, the Blueprint is an opportunity to document student progress in narrative form. It also provides a construct for parents to see why their students are engaged in school and how they achieve their academic milestones."
The Blueprint illustrates a clear action plan for the student to explore their passions and goals while developing socially, emotionally, and academically. A culmination accompanies the Blueprint after each semester in which students showcase their project-based work to parents and peers. Research skills, demonstration of interdisciplinary academic learning, written and verbal communication skills, and collaboration are recognized in the design and delivery of the presentations.
"Spreading innovations such as MUSE's Blueprint assessment model across borders can be a game changer for education worldwide," said Saku Tuominen, Chairman & Creative Director of HundrED. "We encourage schools, educators, administrators, students and organizations to explore global innovations so that we can all work towards a positive future."
