Great post from TED, along with Susan Cain, talking about how our classrooms can be better designed and utilized to harness the power of introverted students. Of particular interest to me: “One thing I think that educators should bear in mind: we allow adults all kinds of flexibility in terms of what kind of social life they want. Adults who have two or three friends, no one thinks twice about it. But we don’t allow children the same degree of flexibility.” How can we avoid setting a “standard” for what level of interaction is “normal”?
