Fab Fridays 25: Microschools

What are Microschools?

Hey everyone!

Happy Friday and greetings from Panama.

Exciting news: Fab Favorites is out! My new series on Alternative Education.

From time to time I’ll cover a new topic in the alternative education space and share my favorite finds. If you are looking for alternatives or complements for your child’s education but feel overwhelmed with the amount of choices out there, this channel is for you. I’ll help you filter the noise and skip the tedious hours of research so you can make informed decisions around your child’s education.


This week's topic is Microschools.

Some people call them “Learning Pods.” Others “Neighborhood Schools.” Some refer to them as the return of the "One-Room Schoolhouse.” And most recently “Pandemic Pods.”

So, are Microschools the future of education?

In this video, I cover:

  • What are Mircroschools? (1:00 - 2:07)

  • Different Microschool approaches (2:08 - 2:28)

  • 6 ways in which Microschools aredifferent from conventional schools (2:29 - 4:49)

  • My Fab Favorite for Microschools (4:50 - 6:30)

  • organizations/resources that can help you set up your Microschool (6:31 - 7:52)

Thanks for watching! Let me know if you find this video useful, and make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel!

Until next week,

Ana Lorena Fabrega
