Understanding by Design – Hands On, Minds on Design, That Is

T.S. Eliot’s “Little Gidding”

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

I’ve often stated that a grand experiment in education would be to simply erect a circus-style tent and fill it with children and teachers. That’s it!

How would we organize? Where would we sit? What would we do?

Oh, one caveat: we can bring things in and out as we progress. It’s not meant to be an adiabatic space, rather one that is not filled with things out of mere anticipation and guess work of what’s to come.


I’m excited to say that this may just happen in a few weeks.

Students and teachers in The Mosaic Collective will design our space. How will we organize? Where will we sit? What will we do?

My answer:

“There’s only one way to find out!”

Stay tuned…
