“What year are you preparing your students for?” Heidi Hayes Jacobs #TEDxNYED

As usual, Heidi Hayes Jacobs makes some intriguing and thought-provoking points. Among them…

  • Are we educators studying television literacy and its effect on learning, especially given its force relative to print media? If not, why not?
  • Are we upgrading (making strategic replacements of outdated curriculum)?
  • Are we keeping “classroom curiosity” lists to archive the fascinating questions and researching of our learners? Or are we too busy “covering what has to be covered?”
  • “I can’t think of a better time to be a public learner…which is what you must be if you want to teach.”
  • Social production democratizes learning.

Take 17 minutes and explore theses and other provocations yourself. Or don’t.

[Note: In her talk, Heidi mentions “contagion” from a video that kicked off TEDxNYED. I bet that is Kiran Bir Sethi’s TED talk. If you have not seen it, and if you are interested in PBL with a “capital P,” then watch it. Or don’t.]
