Learning how not to do the wrong things

My son sent me this TED talk yesterday.  John Hunter talks about the World Peace Game where 4th Graders solve real-world problems using critical and creative thinking and in the process create and make meaning out of their own understanding.  This talk is about the importance of:

  • clearing the space for students to learn
  • giving control over to students - letting them decide what they want to do
  • appreciating the collective wisdom of the class
  • creating a better and more peaceful world.
