About RadSchools

RadSchools is a decentralized collaborative lab (Co-Lab) of creators sharing ideas that move learning communities forward. Our mission is to create momentum around these ideas--and have fun doing it.


The Cooperative Lab (Co-Lab)

RadSchools invites brilliant minds from across the spectrum to share ideas, collaborate on projects, and solve wicked problems in education --and by extension, society. Want to get involved? Wiki coming soon.

Recod/ed Philosophy

RadSchools is unapologetically forward-thinking in its approach. Our Recod/ed philosophy emphasizes the need to evolve to the next dimension in learning--that which is possible, that which is already here, but that which we may not yet see. We consider this "right column" thinking.

Let's Recod/ed ... Fearlessly

What do hackers, skaters, and educators have in common? A lot. Let's come together to push radical ideas to the limit, test those ideas.... fail.... and try again.
