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.]

  3. 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?

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?
