”O my word! We taught children to cheat!”

You can teach a lesson, but you can’t control how students apply it. In fact, I get a kick out of watching  students take to heart a lesson that’s meant to bolster the status quo, and then turn it around to challenge the status quo.

To be clear, I don’t want students using their learning to destroy. I do, however, want them to push the boundaries, to think creatively about how old lessons can solve new problems

This episode of the Chiggerticky podcast briefly investigates three situations in which students learn lessons and apply them in ways their teachers didn’t anticipate. I like this kind of stuff because, frankly, civilization depends on new applications of old lessons. Call it creative problem solving.

C’mon wid it!
