Kendall commented on Portfolios instead of GPAs

The real question is... how do we get colleges/universities to begin accepting these additional packages, and how can we educate more students on the content and benefits of a portfolio?

Kendall commented on Portfolios instead of GPAs

Really like this idea--I think that if students are expected to produce a portfolio during their senior year of HS (or at any time for that matter), they will start to view their accomplishments and activities in an entirely new way.

It's so much more informative to see how a person solves problems, takes risks, and tells a story about what makes them interesting, rather than just looking at some bullet points on a page.

Kendall commented on 3rd World Creativity

It's great that you've been able to witness first hand how young people spend their time in different cultures, with different resources. I wonder, though, if there is any way to use or alter the media that we already produce in the US to cultivate creativity among the youth who engage with it?
