Values Guiding the Curriculum 

Mobility education strives to be an easily modular curriculum that can be readily integrated into a standard driver or traffic safety education course.  The new content is guided by the following core values: 

1.  Experiential Learning

Additional curriculum emphasizes the senses and whole-body learning. By taking concepts from driver education and expanding their meaning to the whole life experience, mobility education provides a compelling and engaging experience for the students.

2.  Standpoint Theory

"Walk a mile in another person's shoes."  Understanding the complexity and diversity of the various roadway users is critical to being successful in our transportation system.  Mobility education makes sure that all new drivers understand the experience of people on foot, bike, and transit and works to afford greater respect to those modes. 

3.  A Focus on Immediate Feedback

Research shows that teens do not possess a fully developed ability to perceive risk.  Explanations for this range from the physiology of brain development to fact that teens bear less responsibility overall. Mobility education makes an effort to help teens identify immediate feedback for their decisions that may be more reliable than calculating the risk involved in decisions and actions.
