How Outschool Works
Don't see a time that works for you?
In this learner-led class, we'll start each session by asking: "What are you working on, and how can we help?" After each student identifies their current projects and needs, and we loop back to each student to provide help, advice, and support. This is a very interactive, conversational and collaborative club. This class is designed as a supportive space for students to identify their needs and ask for help, and it's great practice for articulating business concepts and growing confidence...
Build confidence, practice public speaking, practice articulating needs and boundaries, practice business conversations, provide support to other learners.
I've owned several small businesses for over a decade, and have taught social media marketing to thousands of students online and off. I've worked with adults and kids on business development for over 5 years. I've run dozens of social/business support groups based on the format described above.
None or very minimal and always optional
None - there are generally no worksheets or handouts, and if they are, they're either optional or can be viewed on screen. We're a worldschooling/traveling family without consistent access to materials or a printer, so I try to offer classes in that same spirit!
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
When social media is discussed, it's mentioned with a focus on safety and adults knowing what teens are doing online, so they can help when needed. Social media is not linked or screen shared, per OS policy.
