What if every school shifted from a culture of "teaching arrows" to "learning arrows"?

+ Reminiscent of this classic John Wooden quote: "You haven't taught until they have learned."

+ Why don't more learning experiences look like the one on the right? Read the last entry on "Following the lessons of learning science in schools isn't convenient."


Each Wednesday we share a "what if" scenario. These are not suggestions as much as provocations.

If you have a "what if" scenario you would like to share, just send an email (and indicate whether you would like it attributed it to you).
