OODA Loop in Education / Schools

Can anyone illustrate the use of OODA Loop in any school situation?

An Example of OODA in Schools

When some students in a class are criticizing a teacher of being too demanding while others are complaining he is being too allowing when conducting tests and/or follow-ups, OODA could be considered...
If the teacher wants to react swiftly in order to set things straight, he/she often has to focus on one of the 2 criticised areas first. While doing so, representatives of the other criticism will claim that they are being ignored by the teacher. This can then be used as a cause for another response.
I would say that thus being put "between the hammer and the anvil" in the form of a double binding by students is one possibility to use OODA in schools.

OODA Loop at School

You might also use the OODA loop at university or business school level by first explaining to the students what the approach is and then continuing with an exercise, in which the students have to prepare a short presentation about what will be the next step in their education, while using the OODA Loop in the process.
