may this dress help us to THINK!!!! and remind us the wonders of asking . . .

As my girls are in the throws of standardized testing & I am watching as any sense of curiosity or wonder is being strangled in their classrooms, I find this Tedtalks SO timely, pertinent and inspiring. ‪#‎TedTalkTuesday‬
'wisdom begins in wonder.' socrates

Learning is the new skill. 
Imagination, creation and 
asking new questions are at its core.

In most schools, we measure children on what they know. By and large, they have to memorize the content of whatever test is coming up. Because measuring the results of rote learning is easy, rote prevails. What kids know is just not important in comparison with whether they can think.
