How do children doing open learning face the ‘real world’?

In our experience, children in open learning are already in the real world – they are planning their life, finding resources from all over the world, doing real life projects and internships, travelling, meeting people from different walks of life, etc. Since nothing is pre-cooked for them, they are interacting with the real world on a daily basis.

On the contrary we believe some children and young adults who come out of conventional schooling and college are often lost in the real world because they are confined to classroom learning and homogenous social groups, and may have little or skewed exposure to the world.
