The education team here at Nesta believe that children are inherent makers who "bake" pies with mud, share stories with their invisible (and visible) friends, create YouTube videos of their friends dancing to popular songs, and have mastered manipulating tablets and touch screens to draw.

In response to last week's post, @Carloper posed some great questions: what "mastery" are we measuring? If kids are learning in a more open environment, why do we insist on assessing them in a closed, traditional way?

In my first official teaching job I was a swimming teacher for kids aged 4-12 at a summer program in Japan. Terms like 'classroom management', 'student-centered learning' and 'collaborative learning' did not exist in my vocabulary, and 'flipping the class' meant doing somersaults underwater.
