Einstein Understood....

I read this tonight and wanted to share it. 

"One should guard against preaching to young people success in the customary form as the main aim in life. The most important motive for work in school and in life is pleasure in work, pleasure in its result, and the knowledge of the value of the result to the community." ~Albert Einstein

Does our testing culture and teaching to the test promote pleasure and wonder in learning and life?

Let's get kids DOING the thinking and learning in school so they have the chance to enjoy the work, the results, and the impact. PBL.

Let's make the school walls transparent so the kids see out into and then interact in the community and vice versa.

Now, how to change school cultures to achieve this? That's the big task!

I see TWITTER for teachers playing a big role in this.
