Schools teach obedience. Learning becomes work. And when it’s work, it's natural to try to figure out how to do less of it. “Will this be on the test?“ When it's art, you don't. Great look ahead of how education will change the coming years.
Ah! My favorite hobby. Questions :). "How was your day”. Eeeh “fine” is about as far as you can get. It’s not a very powerful starter. It lacks context. Great alternatives in here. Like "What was the nicest thing you did for someone else?” Or of course: "Which one of your teachers would survive a zombie apocalypse? Why?” And the best part, this must work for grown-ups as well!
