Open Learning, Open Minds

Sometimes our very words, and the way we present them, can fence in our kids’ thinking.  In our effort to guide our students, we have to be careful that we don’t just set up situations where we are looking for just  “right answers.”  We also need to allow kids practice and experience with looking for new answers. Innovative solutions. Creative discoveries.  Thinking outside the box in a way that will get them to a place where they can navigate life in the future.  As we always hear, it’s a future that we can’t even predict,  filled with problems we can’t even imagine.  I watched this video and wonder how many times I’ve limited my students’ creativity just by the way I phrased a question.  Too many probably. This is a reminder to keep the learning open, because that allows their minds to open, too.
