Teacher Tinker Time - Where is it? #coffeechugPLN

This idea has been stuck in my head for about a month.

Teachers need a Tinker Time block built into their schedule.

And now it is time to work! #notepad #coffeechugpln #books #reading #passion #bettpassion #fastcompany #design #blog #lego

Just one period of the day where they are not allowed to

  • grade papers
  • lesson plan
  • destress about students, life, school
  • do paperwork
  • attendance
  • PD
  • etc.
Instead during this time they enter an Innovative Studio, Tinker Lab, whatever you want to call it and just 

  • play
  • color
  • experiment
  • engage in conversation about wild ideas
  • design
  • build
  • draw
  • brainstorm
  • act like a child
I wonder what amazing things would develop if this was built into the day. 

The next big WOW moment would be to add a time for students to do the same!
