What if... crystallized and fluid intelligences?

What if we were to design school for a balance between opportunities to strengthen crystallized intelligence and to practice fluid intelligence?

What if we also designed scenarios for students to be “phase changers”?

If you were to audit all of the experiences students have at your school, what would the ratio look like?

crystallized intelligence : fluid intelligence : vapor intelligence


Each Wednesday we share a “what if” scenario. Consider it a provocation rather than a suggestion.
