What if... collage prep > college prep>
"When I think about how our schools might promote the notion of 'omnidisciplinary thinking,' I wonder if we shouldn't aim to be more collage-prep than college-prep. What if our schools actively taught students to take all that they've amassed as learning, rip it up, rearrange it, and build something new? What if, instead of ever-narrowing disciplinary study, our worlds opened up with increasing breadth as we progressed through our educational journeys?"
--from "Collage Thinking" by Tom Taylor, Upper School Director, Breck School, written for "Systems over Objects" in The Monthly Recharge, the official newsletter of Leadership+Design
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).
