This video and corresponding article from the former English teacher Will Richardson’s presentation at the 2016 International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) is on the need to match our beliefs and the research about how kids learn best with the reality of teaching and learning practices. Mr. Richardson looks to the types of learning students do on their own through connection to their passions outside of school. He suggests educators attempt to shift schools to focus on this type of personalized productive learning which matters in students lives and engenders the desire to learn more.
This article and accompanying video challenges educators, administrators, and policymakers to expand their thinking about school reform.
