In the book The Third Teacher: 79 Ways You Can Use Design to Transform Teaching & Learning, item 71 on the list is "Consult with Kids. Survey students about what they would like to study, then design spaces that let them learn what they want to learn" (p. 225). As Bruce Mau notes, "This is actually a pretty radical idea: to open source school, to say 'well, maybe the best source of information on this practice is the participants themselves.' We assume they don't know anything, and I think that's the biggest mistake we make" (p. 225).

WESLEY CHAPEL — From a tiny classroom off the media center at Wiregrass Ranch High School came laughter, buzzy whispering and shouts of, "This is so cool!"

 

These 25 freshmen were the lucky ones chosen for a pilot program providing students with iPads instead of textbooks. The students picked up the devices Thursday and spent time taking pictures, exploring maps and playing with the many functions.
