Grandview Preparatory School recently welcomed some wonderful guests to our campus for a few days of educational empowerment. John Miller, the pioneer of Agile Classrooms, led a 3-day training for our students and teachers in 21st century learning. He brought along some wonderful colleagues (and a camera crew too) from the Scrum Alliance to our campus in Boca Raton.
Another reason parents often allow their children time on digital devices is because it fends off boredom. But, are we looking at boredom all wrong? During brief and prolonged periods of boredom and daydreaming, creative ideas are born. We should be rejoicing when our kids say they are bored and then leave them to figure out what to do next.
