I should make a clarification about this quotation.
It is not an endorsement of designing learning experiences without taking into consideration the learner. Quite the opposite.
The larger context, as written by John Dewey, is highlighted by Will Richardson. I provide the short version: We think we know what is best for kids; we do not especially if we forget what it is like to learn.
