John Dewey?

The most prolific American philosopher ever. This morning’s philosophy debate/conversation left me feeling excited and energized about the state of education, what is possible and what we are already doing that is so right in schools. And yet, it seems the same questions Montaigne had in the late 1500s and Dewey had in the early 1900s we still have today: How can we make sure education is relevant and timely and contextual?

This is what one group created. This was an amazing class! I left the room and my brain was on fire. Thanks, Professor Hansen…
