learning colleges

Consider for a moment what it would be like to view our classrooms as a sports team. Possibly, after five years as an interscholastic coach in California, and four years of coaching at an American high school in Bangkok, I can see the possibilities, and they seem inviting. When class begins we start by stretching our minds, then some mental exercises followed by group drills, then a scrimmage, ending with a brain cool down, the end of class, and maybe even a class huddle. Perhaps this isn’t the future, but it was only a visual exercise to envision new possibilities, somewhat similar to the concept of learning organizations, or communities of practice (A, S, L).
