Creativity & Collaboration

We need classrooms filled with the chaos of imagination, the chaos of ‘in-progress’ communication capabilities. The chaos of many different paths to learning. We don’t need more tests, we don’t need more “standards,” we don’t need more scripts. And we don’t need more unified strategies.

Let us embrace a learning system which helps create adults who will change the world. We can do it. It isn’t easy, but, Yes, we can.

Quote from an interesting post by Ira Socol on what we should be teaching in schools: collaboration & creativity. Examples of creative problem solving & collaboration like the rescue of Chilean Miners are used.
