Imagine: a superhero school

This talk is about challenging some of the preconceptions we have of schools and shows both what could be done as well as what the positive effects might be.

In this TED talk Dave Eggers greatly explores how a different environment can change childrens perceptions of school and therefore greatly enhance their intrinsic motivation and creativity.
One of the examples he gives for environmental change is a afternoon school that presents itsself as a superhero equipment store selling wahtever superheros need to do their job. A secret door then leads to the learning environment.

I would have loved to go to that school.
