Moving at the Speed of Creativity by Wesley Fryer

Podcast135: Playing School or Preparing for Life? (by Meg Ormiston)

This podcast is a recording of a presentation by Meg Ormiston at the METC Conference in St. Louis today. The conference program description of her presentation was: Are we preparing students to be successful in school or successful in life? If livelong learning is the goal, the methods, tools and strategies must change from “text based” instruction to interactive learning. Instead of instructors who talk faster as high stakes tests get closer, we need to stop talking and help students make sense of the contetn using new strategies that enage those students. Stream video into the classroom, collaborate with others across the globe, reshape curriculum with the goal of increased student achievement. If you need a jump-start to getting started in your classroom, attend this eye opening session!

    Hang in there, there are a few seconds of silence, but then the session begins. Wesley, thanks for posting these podcasts from METC. There were lots of sessions I wanted to attend and tough decisions had to be made. Thanks to your podcasts, I can now listen to the ones I missed.
