Click Here to see a movie made by digital learners about how they are trapped in schools who still teach using analog strategies. I came across the clip in a comment left on Will Richardson's site where he was blogging about the Building Learning Communities conference he and everyone else but me were attending. I so hate being left out!
He was descring the keynote by Marco Torres here is (his Web site) The more clicks I make on this guy the more I am discovering my next hero! His motto on his Web site says..."stay curious, stay hungry, be creative!" Man- I love that! His student's work made me reevaluate everything. I think that is the answer for all that ills education-- we havent stayed curious, hungry, or creative!
Steve Dembo blogged about his keynote as well. I love this quote...
Teachers have three options, you can quit, complain or innovate.
I have no idea how this brilliant man stayed off my radar screen for so long. Trust me-- you will be hearing more about Marco Torres
