Now this is inspiring

Chris Lehmann in 5 minutes and 20 slides tells us what is wrong with schools and what should be done about it.

Key point: computers are transformative technology. Kids get it. How many teachers and administrators do? How many administrators what things to be the way they were?  ’cause that’s what they know. Outside the classroom kids have access to more information and more people than they do in the classroom. So, what are they learning in the classroom? Are we helping them deal with the information available to them? Are we helping them figure out how to make sense of it? Are we hoping the “problem” goes away?
