the school comes from his inability to utilize the experiences he gets outside the school … while, on the other hand, he is unable to apply in daily life what he is learning at school. That is the isolation of the school -- its isolation from life. – John Dewey (1899)
articles more, because I know it’s easy to just read them and then just forget about the stuﬀ that you read. But when you have to make annotations and really think about the stuﬀ that you’re highlighting and making annotations about, it’s a lot easier to remember information because you’re like, “oh yeah I remember that [because] I made an annotation and I talked a bit about that.” (Student L, Class A)
making an annotation or, [magnet-note], writing thing, it was helpful to look at what other people had found about that and opposing ideas too, so you can look at what they're doing and then put that in and it would make a better answer for you. L: ... if I wanted to contribute to someone else's thing, if it connected to mine I could use my own annotations but also other people's annotations that I didn't personally study. (Student T & L, Class D) Z: Well, a lot of people were using IdeaMagnets, and a lot of people were studying copper, like me. So I was able to just go in there and ﬁnd stuﬀ that was relevant to what I was learning. M: It makes it easier to ﬁnd stuﬀ… Z: It's good to switch out which tags you're searching with. So if you're trying to ﬁnd a speciﬁc source, then if you only click copper and human resource, or whatever, then you gotta switch up which ones you're in. (Student Z & M, Class E)

honestly if someone saw this there persepective about climate change would alter or a least that's what happened to me. I thought for sure that Asia was the big problem to climate change. Then, when I took a look at some real data and put in a graph everything changed for me I even had to go back and double check my work. What the graph showed was that the main cause of climate change is us North America. This is so important to me because every old powerful person keeps on saying to their country, "oh don't worry we are not the cause of climate change just keep going on with your lives, there is no need to worry." But really everyone was lying because every country did their part in making climate change such a huge problem. What makes me the most upset is that the country that I live in is the worst contributer to climate change and we are not doing anything about it. Since no one who has power running our country is doing anything about this issue. I think if kids give real complex information and spread awarness about a serious issue throughout the whole world eventaully some people who are smart enough to understand this will help us kids and hopefully they can make it a little less complex for people like Donald Trump who can't understand something as complicated as this so, when this information get's to someone who can actually do something about this and hopefully quick enough so we are still live before Donald Trump relizes that everyone will dye in a short matter of time.
