In a new interview with CMRubinWorld, Meixi, from Redes de Tutoria, discusses the innovative inquiry based education model that ensures students focus on process and a shared learning culture.

Redes de Tutoria was established in Mexico in 1997 in an effort to create an educational environment where the student can be a student and a teacher, moving away from the traditional school model. Since then, this innovative learning model has spread to Singapore, Thailand, Chile, and San Diego, California and continues to scale. C.M. Rubin Founder of CMRubinWorld, spoke with Meixi, a principal of the movement, to find out more about their innovative work in education.

In the Tutoria model, students are guided by teachers but are self-directed learners. They focus on inquiry based learning projects called ‘Temas’. Process in this learning model is more important than the final answer. Students often explore many solutions to a Tema; and when a Tema is finished, each student must present his/her work to the class. This creates a shared learning culture among a school community of learners. Students are both learners and teachers. “We need to unsettle normative definitions of modernity and figure out how to design schooling towards varied and diverse ways of being, and knowledge systems that uphold family, community, and ecological futures,” says Meixi.
