The videoes below embody what (I think) learning and school should be. 

The first video showcases The Makery, a pop-up makerspace in New York City.

Gary Stager talks about Seymour Paper and why Papert's philosophies and learning theories matter in the second video.

In the third video, web developer Michael Newman says (and I paraphrase) that it's ok to go out and do something without knowing the reason as to why you're doing it.  If you're interested in something, or if something just clicks and you're excited about doing it, then figure out the pratical output afterwards. 

That's a philosophy to live by.
