Two great videos for the teacher in your life

Christian Long keeps the excellent Think:Lab blog, which is all about new approaches to education. Today he found two great videos. One is an inspiring teacher’s answer to what he “makes.” The second is a video about whether we are paying attention and asks teachers some interesting questions.

More goodies like these over on my link blog. Oh, and FeedDemon just added the ability to share items with other people, er, do your own link blog.

  1. Yeah, these are great videos. My wife (4th grade teacher) showed a few of them to me. She is trying hard to get her school to adopt a more technology focused curriculum. It is a challenge to get teachers out of the ‘old ways’ of thinking. I blogged a few weeks ago about it and a couple others after watching them: http://www.palermiti.org/2007/05/19/the-machine/

    Cheers!
