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.
