Our team partnered with Swell Creative Group to roll out a series of mini docs for Mosaic‘s Self Directed Learning campaign. We traveled all over the United States interviewing people who chose not to attend public school. However, this isn’t homeschooling – it’s unschooling. This was an incredible project to be a part of. We met fascinating people with captivating stories about how they felt school just wasn’t for them. Each video highlights a different story of someone who taught themselves or or a loved one in a truly unique learning style. We are proud to be documenting the forefront of the self directed learning revolution.
