Letting Go

Kevin Jarrett turned me on to this video that David Warlick recently used at the NJElite Conference in Wildwood, NJ. You might recognize some of the speakers, including Daniel Pink, a former EdTechConnect webinar guest speaker.

Basic message: We need to stop “teaching” our students with tools of the past. We EXPECT the latest and best technologies to be used to manufacture the products in our lives (our cars, clothes, etc.), so why don’t we demand they be used in education as well?  What old habits are we willing to let go of?  What are we willing to change so that our students (and we) can truly learn?

Do you have a favorite education video? After watching this one, leave a comment with a link to a video you think people should see. I’ll compile them in a future post.
