There is much confusion about what constitutes a positive classroom environment and what purpose it is meant to serve. For some, it represents a one way channel by which the teacher can pass information to the empty vessels that are the students.

I think we should be much more ambitious than this. These articles from Edutopia paint an alternative scene:

Dazed and confused much of the time but convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans.
