Thank you Mind/Shift. You are awesome.

Why Learning Should Be Messy

http://blogs.kqed.org/mindshift/2012/10/why-learning-should-be-messy/  

The following is an excerpt of One Size Does Not Fit All: A Student’s Assessment of School, by 17-year-old Nikhil Goyle, a senior at Syosset High School in Woodbury, New York.

 

' Can creativity be taught? Absolutely. The real question is: “How do we teach it?” In school, instead of crossing subjects and classes, we teach them in a very rigid manner. Very rarely do you witness math and science teachers or English and history teachers collaborating with each other. Sticking in your silo, shell, and expertise is comfortable. Well, it’s time to crack that shell. It’s time to abolish silos and subjects.'

Yes,  Nikhil, you're right.

Here is some fun, messy projects. Just to prove a point.
