Some thoughts on learning...from Diana Laufenberg, in an interesting TED talk:

"if we continue to look at education as if it's about coming to school to get the information, and not about experiential learning, empowering student voice, and embracing failure, we're missing the mark....we won't get there with a standardized test, and we won't get there with a culture of 'one right answer'.  We know how to do this better, and it's time to do it better."
