I've been keeping tabs on this project since I first heard about it through the Teaching Artist's Union (I'm a dance, theatre and creative writing teaching artist, in case you didn't know). School of the Future pretty much embodies the truest and most pure sentiments of education, asking "What do you want to learn?" and then finding someone to teach it to you. They've set up a Kickstarter Fund to pay for construction costs, and are looking for backers to donate as little as $1 to help them reach their goal (of course, more is appreciated, if you've got it)!
It. Looks. Awesome.
