Notice at Uncollege.org that the unschooling method of home schooling is equally applicable to college studies. Over the years, there has been several good websites by uncolleging students which they used to keep their learning organized and displayed. Though uncollege.org doesn't promote Christian education, the founder has been speaking at home school conventions around the country, and the methods of uncollege can be used to learn anything. There was a good and simple example of a student curriculum vita linked to uncollege.org. Dale Stephens is the 19 year old founder of uncollege.org and has received a grant for $100,000 to develop the concept further from the Theil Foundation.
The Theil Foundation encourages young people to challenge the authority of the present and familiar with $100,000 grants to students under 20 years old. Here are a few of the interesting projects that might inspire other home college methods (e.g., Biblical Concourse of Home Universities, AME Program, New Geneva) and students to realistically think high tech and outside the box.
