Emergent Academy’s Guide is a hands-on role to lead a multi-age group of elementary, middle or high school students. Guides work with students as they use adaptive technology to learn core skills, such as math, reading, writing and science. The Guide is pivotal to motivating, assisting and collaborating with students as they work through the revolutionary “Emergent Academy” academic and life-skill school model.
An Emergent Guide is not a traditional teaching role; rather, it is the opportunity to lead students in a truly Socratic setting using extraordinary technology. If you are a passionate on teaching to impact your students through usage on new models and technologies - this role is for you.
As Emergent Guide, you will work with students each day to set academic and life skills goals. It is the Guide’s responsibility to monitor progress and motivate students through their daily, weekly and session goals.
Guides help students develop self-agency, so that each student will be able to seek answers to their questions. In an afternoon, a Guide might: listen to a student practice a TedTalk and give feedback or brainstorm with a student who is developing code.
Also, In this role you will be developing academic resources, running workshops related to the application of learning and you will have the opportunity to make an immediate impact at all levels of the position. You will work in partnership with other guides, parents and Emergent leadership.
Emergent Academy is redefining the way students go to school. Change starts with our three promises to parents:
Emergent Academy Students learn two to three times faster than students in a traditional school
Emergent Academy Students learn the life skills (public speaking, goal setting, leadership, grit, entrepreneurship and purpose) that are necessary to be successful
Emergent Academy Students love school
The Internet is revolutionizing education and how we learn and gain knowledge. Traditional school models are being redesigned as students no longer require a commonplace classroom to obtain knowledge and demonstrate skill mastery.
Emergent Academy prepares students to think deeply, to learn how to fail, and to problem solve. We are excited to help prepare students for the ultra-competitive workplace that is evolving at lightning speed. We use adaptive technology to teach core skills faster and more efficiently, allowing us ample time to teach and develop life skills. Because we are more efficient, Emergent Academy students do not have homework.
Emergent Academy feels like a start-up, emulating the spaces where the most revolutionary ideas in learning and student progress evolve. This formula creates an environment where students love school so much, they’d rather come to school than go on vacation – literally.
