What if school could be more play-based, more project-based, more passion-based? What if school could look more like Caine’s Arcade? [WATCH the 10 minutes! You won’t regret it.]
A boy, a dad, and a stranger share the roles of “teacher” and “student.” There’s math, engineering, communications, design, sociology, social media, economics, marketing, ethics,…
[Many thanks to @occam98 for making me aware of Caine’s Arcade! My boys are saving boxes now!]

What I found fascinating is that Caine did all this on his own outside of school. Kids want to have a purpose and want to create things (so do adults). Why don’t we re-structure (or de-structure) our schedules so that they are allowed to play and create more?
When educators ask what the future of education looks like, all they need to do is watch this viral video. How many aspects of The Learning Pond does Caine demonstrate? Mining for ideas; sweat; skunkworks; reflection and assessment; synthesis; creation. What if every school in America adopted time for students to create something/anything along these lines? How explosive would that be?
Adopting time for students to create! That’s one of the primary keys to the kingdom. You hit the nail on the head, Grant!
