Listening to Gever Tulley talk in this 4-minute video, I learned, for example, these 4 things about that type of education:
1. Education participants use all kinds of tools and materials to build things.
2. Teachers are collaborators.
3. There is no curriculum.
4. There are no tests.
How is education of kids done where you live?
I came across the video through this blog posting by Braden Kelley.
