Alex, Vinnie, and arvind bring in the close of 2014 with the year’s final episode. We discuss some of our goals and aspirations for the break and for the next year. Tune in one last time in 2014.
Vinnie and arvind talk about the People of Color Conference, Student Diversity Leadership Conference, and the current state of protests in New York, the show of force by the NYPD outside of arvind’s school, and the impact on students and faculty.
Alex, Vinnie, and arvind discuss students learning how to learn, and share three examples from their schools about long-term projects, with students in charge of their own learning.
During Alex and arvind’s spring break, Vinnie joins in and the group takes a tour of Vinnie’s school’s new maker space. Check out the great video images. We also talk books, Anil Dash only retweeting women for a year, and the next show.
Thanks to kind listener Kevin who wrote in, this edition has both the video replay (below) and the audio podcast (attached). It’s a little tricky to go from YouTube to QuickTime to iTunes to here, but it works! Podcasting has come a long way.
Enjoy this week’s show where Alex, Vinnie, and arvind discuss, “what do learners really want?”
