What if we thought of schools as creative houses?

Just a thought…

As education becomes more social, more collaborative, deos it still make sense to think of student work in terms of “assignments”? 

When creative teams work together to produce something new, they use a task manager, not an assignment manager, to share out the work. Yes?

So, if students and teachers are collaborating to create new knowledge, would a task manager be a better tool for managing work that needs doing?

I mean, I get excited thinking about what teaching and learning would look like a whole school–students, teachers and admins–used something like Behance’s Action Method, at least as a metaphor for their work flow.
