The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

I edited the original video to 52 minutes. Basically, I cut out the technical glitches! Enjoy this live chat which took place on Monday, February 15 in which 170 educators participated. Feel free to embed & blog about it!

Finally got around to watching this -- how many months later -- and was inspired to read more of what Mr. Kohn has to say. Thanks for setting this up -- very inspirational.

I love when Kohn described Bruner's law: We need to teach students to regard success and failure as INFORMATION. I think this is so critical for students to develop a love for learning.

Really appreciated the analysis of the psychological characteristics needed to move into a new way of leading learners to ways of knowing.

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More
