15 Minutes Well Spent

Alan November's Ted Talk

This is worth watching. It confirms and illustrates in typical Alan November style,  what many of us believe about education and the direction good practice in learning should take.

This sort of teaching and learning may prove quite challenging initially. Schools probably aren't set up for it. Teachers and students may have difficulty adopting new teaching and learning strategies as the responsibility for learning shifts quite heavily onto the learners' shoulders. Isn't that where the responsibility for learning should lie?

 Teachers as facilitators, empowered students who make good choices, problem solve and publish work worth sharing with others; have got to be steps in the right direction.
