Upside Down Academy is making it easier for students to help each other learn. The more students help each other, the more they take control of their own futures, the more they learn to work with each other in a collaborative rather than competitive environment, the more everyone will benefit.
When students help each other, they develop better social skills, learn to think empathetically, and improve their communication skills.
The site is designed to make it easy to turn any lesson in to Project-Based Learning. By creating lessons to teach their peers, students do creative work that has a true benefit beyond just a grade.
Teaching something you have just learned is a great way to challenge your understanding of the material. Students are creating lessons that they can refer back to later on and that accumulate into a wealth of “peer-tutoring” resources.
