ALT2HS Spotlight Podcast


to ALT2HS Spotlight Podcast, a dedicated space for parents, educators, and learners who are curious about self-directed education and unschooling.

Discover Learning Unleashed

Join us as we explore the empowering world of self-directed learning (SDL) — an educational approach that fosters curiosity, nurtures passions, and respects the individual learning journey of each child. In this channel, we dive deep into what SDL truly means, how it functions, and why it could be the key to unlocking a more fulfilling, integrated, and holistic learning experience.

Our Mission

Our mission is to demystify self-directed education, share practical insights, and celebrate the stories of those who have ventured off the beaten path of traditional schooling. Whether you’re an experienced unschooling advocate or new to the concept and seeking guidance, our podcast series offers a blend of personal anecdotes, expert interviews, and supportive discussions.

What to Expect

  • Personal Stories: Hear from your host, a seasoned self-directed learning parent, about the transition from traditional education to unschooling, including the triumphs and trials along the way.
  • Expert Insights: Gain valuable perspectives from guest speakers, including educators, psychologists, and families thriving within the self-directed learning model.
  • Community Interaction: Engage with a growing community of like-minded individuals passionate about reshaping education to honor the unique needs and interests of each child.

Visual & Audio Narrative

We understand the power of visual storytelling. That’s why our podcasts are not just auditory experiences but visual journeys. With thoughtfully crafted slides and imagery, each episode is designed to not only inform but also to captivate and inspire.

Join the Movement

If you’re looking to connect with a community that challenges the status quo, advocates for trust in the natural learning process, and supports the development of self-motivated, passionate learners, then you’ve found your tribe.
