Nature is the easiest place to learn because it is so dynamic, alive, and captivating. Watch children outdoors. A new bug is a new world.
The principles of creating a healthy, productive classroom and a caring community of learners are the same principles that can create that kind of workplace. Classrooms and workplaces that encourage curiosity, inquiry, initiative, connecting with others, and play are engaging and promote learning that sticks.

A client told me recently that she attended a tech conference and it had a different vibe than most conferences. When we explored that vibe we discovered it was about trying things, watching what happened, responding to that, and continuing to PLAY with what was trying to happen. That can sound very esoteric, but it is very practical. If you poke something, even a system, it reacts.
