This ARTICLE  presents their three approaches to learning: “learning from nature, learning from technique, and learning from practice.”  Their school get students out of the classroom but also gives them a chance to use their hands, interact with animals, learn how to grow their own food, and most importantly – have fun!

Other companies have jumped in on similar ideas around breaks from technology… Chick-Fil-A recently started a promotion called the Family Challenge.  They encourage families to put ALL technology into a box and while they eat their meal at the restaurant.  If you successfully make it through the whole meal without using your devices, they proved you with free “icedream” cones!
