I was watching the following TED talk as I nibbled away at my lunch. I thought the following video was of particular interest (especially with my particular interest in mathematics education).
What I particularly like about this is that it recognizes that students all have different needs when it comes to instruction, and that it’s nearly impossible for teachers to address this perfectly in the classroom in an efficient and effective way.
Many of today’s issues are covered in the system he’s developed, and the class partnerships that he’s described appeal to so many issues that are being discussed in education. Using technology effectively, gaming in education, diverse student needs.
