“The tyranny of the curriculum” #TEDx @ThinkThankThunk

An extraordinary 17 minutes about the intersections of 1) our personal interests and passions, 2) the “interdisciplinarity” of life, and 3) the world as external audience looking for an improved world.

Well…no, that’s not exactly right. It’s really about widening and deepening the options of school so that “school” is more well aligned with what life beyond school demands of us and the leaders we need.

And Shawn wonderfully wants it to be ordinary. Not “extraordinary.”

Go BIG!

  1. I enjoyed watching this, Bo. It gave me some needed reinforcement for the direction I want fifth grade social studies (and other classes) to take.
