SXSW-Bloglets- Push v. Pull

Have we thought about how much of the curriculum that we have in our schools is push curriculum? This is the curriculum that we see as important, so we push it to the students to consume it. What would happen if we transitioned to a system that was more of a pull curriculum. It would allow student passions to be at the forefront of the learning, and as skilled artisans in the area of teaching and learning, we would pull concepts, skills, and ideas through these passions. What would this sort of change mean for our system?
