Don’t miss the chance to watch the Daniel Pink webinar archive! I was lucky enough to be able to attend & all I can say is WOW! Not only was Daniel, himself, an excellent presenter, but the conversations that abounded in the chat box were amazing- and that’s just the threads I was able to keep up with! I am definitely going to listen to this one again!
Here’s a short breakdown of Dan Pink’s synopsis about the future of education:
- We need New Metrics- new ways to gauge student progress & our own effectiveness. In other words, & I love this statement, we need to prepare our students for THEIR future, not OUR past.
- We MUST Integrate Art into the entire curriculum
- We need to develop more flexible & customized curriculum based on individual students’ interests& experiences (i.e. Life integration)
- We must find a way to allow teachers a greater sense of Autonomy. Only then, will they (we) feel free to instruct with greater creativity & authenticity.
So, treat yourself to an early holiday gift- Curl up with your computer & one of the holiday gift boxes of chocolate you got from a student & Watch the Daniel Pink Webinar
