Here is a 11 year old girl speaking on creativity, bold ideas, trust and "Childish Thinking."
I love what is said here about adults trusting students. There is something scary about handing the keys to the classroom over to our students, but why not give up control. Let the students drive. Sure you may end up in a place you never intended, but how cool would it be to open up to a world you never imagined. Watch this presentation, get inspired by this brilliant mind and see that she is just as brilliant as the kids I see every day. The difference, our school system doesn't trust our kids.
So think bold, be creative, love the unknown, hand over the keys, you might just be inspired......
The way progress happens is that new eras improve on generations that came before you.
