Learning is Messy

This post is a cross post from my original in the  OSSEMOOC  June 2014, 30 days of collaborative blogging “Picture and Post” series.

In some ways, this picture says it all.

On the other hand,  maybe not.

I think the real question is:  what does is look like in the classroom? – or the work place for that matter.  Rows of cubicles are no different than rows of desks.  Learning, and collaborating, in messy mode requires a shift.

How do we build greater comfort and capacity to let go,  let the messiness happen and let the students/staff benefit from less control and increased socialization?

Please share.  What does this look like, sound like and feel like in your classroom or work space?
