Why teaching must change


I’m stuck in assignment hell right now so am resorting to linkage. However this link is an amazing primer for why teaching isn’t just about opening up students heads and shoving information in, it involves creating authentic experiences for kids and making learning relevant to them. I loved how she nailed the description of how access to information dramatically changed. But the key lesson I got out of that talk is that it is ok to let students experience failure so long as they have the opportunity to put it right.
