  BishopBerkeley: For those involved in the education of young people, the "Reggio Emilia Approach" to pre-school education (named for the city) may be familiar:

"Reggio Emilia's approach to early education reflects a theoretical kinship with Dewey, Piaget, Vygotsky, and Bruner, among others. Much of what occurs in the class reflects a constructivist approach to early education. Yet, Reggio Emilia's approach challenges some American conceptions of teacher competence and developmentally appropriate practice. For example, teachers in Reggio Emilia assert the importance of being confused as a contributor to learning; thus a major teaching strategy is to purposefully allow for mistakes to happen, or to begin a project with no clear sense of where it might end. Another characteristic that is counter to the beliefs of many American educators is the importance of the child's ability to negotiate in the peer group, which renders teacher intervention in children's minimal conflicts unnecessary. One of the most challenging aspects of the Reggio Emilia approach is the solicitation of multiple points of view regarding children's needs, interests, and abilities, and the concurrent faith in parents, teachers, and children to contribute in meaningful ways to the determination of school experiences. Teachers trust themselves to respond appropriately to children's ideas and interests, they trust children to be interested in things worth knowing about, and they trust parents to be informed and productive members of a cooperative educational team. The result is an atmosphere of community and collaboration that is developmentally appropriate for adults and children alike...."

P.S. I hope that being confused is a contributor to learning! If it is, I may be a far greater scholar than I think :)
