Studio Based Learning and Social Justice

Studio based learning is a very interesting environment for learners. In my experience with it, it provides structured freedom in a sense. There is some lecture, but for the most part it revolves around whatever the student feels he/she needs to be doing. It is similar, in a way, to Montessori schools. This environment can promote social justice, in some ways, better than a traditional classroom. It allows the needs of many different learners to be met, because they are able to target different needs directly. This also frees up the teachers time, because he/she is able to almost float around. The teacher can help more students with what they need instead of deciding what he/she thinks that the entire classroom needs help with.
