Translating Facts into Knowledge
Umewaka, Soraya
Mind, Brain, and Education, v5 n1 p27-28 Mar 2011
Many education systems have a tendency to be limiting and rigid.

How can we unleash our children's imagination and permit them to use play and other creative tools as a means of learning? This article proposes new ways to tackle this old problem.
