Get your fire lit!

BigThink recently published an article that included a dozen videos believed to help spark educators' thinking about the changes that are occurring in education. Check out the complete article, cause like a picture, a video sometimes speaks much louder than words.

Here's their list:

  1. Sir Ken Robinson, Changing education paradigms (11 minutes)
  2. Sugatra Mitra, The child-driven education (17 minutes)
  3. Clay Shirky, How cognitive surplus will change the world (13 minutes)
  4. Chris Anderson, How web video powers global innovation (19 minutes)
  5. Dean Shareski, Sharing: The moral imperative (25 minutes)
  6. Henry Jenkins, TEDxNYED (18 minutes)
  7. Daniel Pink, Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us (11 minutes)
  8. Dan Meyer, Math class needs a makeover (12 minutes)
  9. Jeff Jarvis, TEDxNYED (17 minutes)
  10. Lisa Nielsen, Response to principal who bans social media (4 minutes)
  11. New Brunswick Department of Education, 21st century education in New Brunswick (6 minutes)
  12. Charles Leadbeter, On innovation (19 minutes)
If an educational act is to be efficacious, it will be only that one which tends to help toward the complete unfolding of life. To be thus helpful it is necessary rigorously to avoid the arrest of spontaneous movements and the imposition of arbitrary tasks.

James 1:2-4 ESV 

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

I humbly thank my wonderful family for their support in all that I do. Robert Robbie Cowan, Robert Drew Andrew Cowan, and Hunter Cowan Hartselle, Decatur, AL
