(SNN) – A progressive public school in Edmonton, Alberta is conducting what is considered one of the boldest social experiments in modern eduction. “We are removing computer tablets from playtime, and teaching the children how to play with each other,” said Mildred Muckalisk vice-principal of Wellingdon Elementary. “The first program we created was “Hide and Seek,” she added. According to the written manual, the children are taught to 'hide until you can no longer see the seeker.'

“Some kids are so good at this program that they can even prevent them from hearing the seeker look for them,” stated Muckalisk. It really has increased the overall grades of the school. “That equals more government funding,” added Muckilisk.

The original program is attributed to Wellingdon Elementary because the faculty found that the method of hiding was not properly explained. “We edited the program manual until it was very clear,” bragged one teacher.

So far the entire student body has mastered the “Hide and Seek” method.
