CHANGEd: What if we connected students with city design projects? 60-60-60 #52

One dynamic way to help schools move into “21st century” education – full of project-based learning, design thinking, and integrated studies – would be to partner secondary-school students with local architects, city planners and developers, new urbanists, sustainability scientists, etc.

In this 52nd post, what if we moved from a scholastic house of cards…to education that blurred more boundaries between school and real life?!


Thanks to my PLN (personal learning network), I have been exposed to a few more profound thinkers and resources concerning school as ecosystem, learning-spaces evolution, etc.
