Here at Educon yesterday, I had the chance to learn a bit more about design thinking from David Jakes. David's central point was that schools and teachers often get stuck in a "Yeah, but..." mindset when thinking about change.
Of course, we'd have to work to take active steps to redefine almost everything about our schools if a culture of "Do" is really going to be possible.
===> Grading will need to change -- from a focus on content mastery to a focus on demonstration of an ability to apply content in novel situations <===
