I agree with this: "In an educational mindset, we might think the learning itself is the important thing, but really we're talking about doing, with learning as something that happens in the process of pursuing meaningful goals." Which is why it is unfortunate, as the author points out, that the tools that enable doing are blocked. "You've got a motivated, innovative teacher who wants to let kids focus on the stuff that matters to them... but is finding it at odds with the goals of the system."
