IncitED's curator insight, July 9, 2013 1:19 PM

Anyone remember playing school, playing doctor, having a lemonade stand? I learned so much from doing these things as a child; we sometimes take for granted just how much these things stick with us in life. They do stick, and with schools like this, where guided play is the learning, these kids might just remember! Cheers, Philly Free School!

Anita Vance's curator insight, August 3, 2013 4:39 PM

What a great description and comparison of the learning that occurs during play.  Definitely creating a guide for continued discovery!

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice | Learning Through Play | Scoop.it

This thinking really strikes a chord with me.

In media studies we often look at the creation of print and digital advertisements. Traditionally, students learn many of the foundational principles for creating a layout through a lecture or text book reading, and then eventually create their own.

What if we started with creativity rather than principles?

Моя практика показывает, что такой путь - верный!

Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, January 10, 2014 3:56 AM

Who ever suggested Bloom's taxonomy as a pyramid that required to master the bottom levels before the top ones?

 

Putting 'creating' first is the logical manifestation of action-oriented teaching.

Miguel Angel Perez Alvarez's curator insight, January 10, 2014 11:47 AM

Suena provocador comenzar por la creación y la creatividad en lugar de comenzar con la memorización de información.
