Google fellow and passionate teacher on the frontline, G Douglas, believes in reimagining our school system and how we work WITH kids. Through Studentsource kids are connecting with each other with real work for a real purpose through entrepreneurship, autonomy, creativity and connection.
G Douglas Bundy is a parent, musician, artist, and teacher at Raleigh Hills K-8 in Portland. Working from his underground lair at Raleigh Hills, he is building a technology arts program that seeks to preserve and develop creativity and the love of learning for children, teachers, and parents alike. Bundy uses project-based learning that starts with something a kid is interested in to foster creativity through video-game design, web applications, filmmaking, sound-design, programming, prototyping, and photography. At the core of his belief is the role of teachers to become “interest creators” and to “draw out” the remarkable capacities in children. Ideally this allows for teachers and students to collaborate to do real work for real purpose. One of his students encapsulated this vision beautifully with the statement: “The world needs more kid made things.”
