Details

Students like to play. They want opportunities to mess around and experiment in their learning and work. We are not talking about having fun, at least not exclusively, although a bit of that is great as well. We are talking about having the time to explore, experiment, and discover. Learning how to do that productively is difficult because the organizational structures and cultures of most schools are antithetical to messing around.
