The idea that there is no place for play in school (for students or teachers) is so disappointing. And unfortunately, many people don’t make time for play at home, either. I think lack of time, always doing and going, creates a need to have a step-by-step guide for how to do things, rather than just exploring them and seeing what comes of it. We know that everyone learns better when they’re actively engaged in a process — so why can’t we accept playing, tinkering, exploring as a critical learning activity.
Nowhere is this more true I think than in technology, where the world is just waiting for you to jump in and see where you can go.
