Tomorrow’s Classroom

Tomorrow’s Classroom

By 2020, school will be less of a citadel than ever, and kids will be doing more and more of their learning in the real world.

When McKinzey Manes heads for the office in the morning at 7:15 a.m., she’s dressed for success—in a jacket, sweater, light-colored shirt, and low-heeled shoes. Likewise, her business partner, Aiden Haubein, favors khakis and collared shirts. They’re disciplined, they work hard, and they’re still in high school. Manes and Haubein, both 18, are developing an app they’ve dubbed the “All in One,” which integrates the various elements of people’s professional and personal lives: calendar, email, cloud storage, tasks, notes, and projects, at the Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS), an immersive, hands-on program offered by the Blue Valley School District in Overland Park, Kansas.
