There are so many good ideas and thoughts out there and I love the idea of this one. http://thinklab.typepad.com/think_lab/2007/08/on-the-road.html#comments Travelling around in a RV for a month with students and teachers. Exploring the country where you live by taking the backroads, eating healthy and bonding/fighting with other students/teachers. I would sign on to this project. It reminds me of my time spent in Katimavik. http://www.katimavik.org/section/index/id/1 This program was instramental in my discovering the joys of teaching, helping to adjust to living with others, team work, responsiblities, and budgeting.
I love the idea of taking time during the school year to explore. Working, travelling, and being in close proximaty with others is a learning process that can not be gained by any traditional school. So much could be learned and discovered... possiblities are endless.
