TTT#361 Taking Summer Experiences into the Future 8.28.13

Summers are often filled with exploring and learning. This summer was no exception for many students and teachers. Join teachers and students from IDEC 2013 and the Youth Voices Summer Program on this episode of TTT, recorded 8.28.13 We talk about about amazing experiences of learning and being together this past summer, and perhaps most importantly, we ask how these experiences were coming with us into the fall.

We are joined by both teachers and youths who worked together in the New York City Writing Projects Youth Voices Summer Program http://youthvoices.net/summer2013 and teachers and students who attended IDEC 2013 http://www.idec2013.org/

What an exciting group to ask: What future do you want to create?

On the previous episode of TTT#325 – Youth Night with Monisha Nelson, Kelsey Shelhart, Cristian Buendia, Jessica Morgan, Tommy Buteau, Jeff Lebow 11.28.12, we asked a few youths what changes they wanted to make happen. Kelsey said that she wanted to start an environmental club in her school. On this episode we do our best to help her! Our guests this week offer ways to help Kelsey — and all of us with something to DO around climate change and taking a global perspective.

Perhaps you know a student, a son or daughter, brother or sister who might want to join our efforts on TTT to turn our show over to youths to plan impromptu and scheduled webcasts via Hangouts On Air that will allow them to deepen their conversations with each other and to amplify their voices.

Enjoy this week's open, chaotic, ground-level planning session, and invite a student to join us soon in this ongoing set of conversations.

TTT#322 Reclaiming the public in public education (IDEA) w/ Allie Desmet, Beth Sanders, Sam Chaltain, Gregory HIll – 11.07.12

Learn more about the Institute for Democratic Education in America (IDEA) democraticeducation.org on this episode of TTT , with our guests:

From the IDEA site:

Democratic education is not a type of school or research-based practice. It isn’t one kind of learning program or philosophy. It is a frame. It’s a way of gathering together a vast and powerful set of ideas, philosophies of learning, research, school models, teaching practices, policies, and community visions so that a powerful story can be told that reclaims the “public” in public education—that is, education owned by all of us.

This is an ongoing discussion on TTT and we invite you to join us any Wednesday evening to reclaim the public in public education. Come on over to TTT edtechtalk.com/ttt at 9PM ET/6PM PT

Until the nuanced story is clear, truthful and told by and large by those who are experiencing the greatest suffering (ie: young people), the solutions generated will not be the ones our city needs. —Jayeesha Dutta

“People need to have the power to solve their own problems” – Kosta Grammatis
Kosta Grammatis believes if you provide a person with a mobile  device and access to the internet their learning space can be anywhere.  Support a person’s curiosity to question, reason and create within whatever space they are in and their learning can become anything.  Learners of the 21st century need these things: a space, a device, a  connection, a facilitator, a motive. Yet over 5 billion people on this  planet don't have internet access.

TTT#312 3rd Space 2 – Dave Cormier, Kirill Kireyev, Kristen Specketer, Mary Reilly, Daniel Craig, Fred Mindlin, Jeff Lebow 8.29

 

On last week's TTT edtechtalk.com/node/5123 we were joined by some of the participants from a "3rd Space Conference" ourcolab.org/the-invitational-summer-institutes-teachers-teaching-teachers/  in July and others interested in community collaborations. The conversation centered on combining the insights and work of artists and museum professionals with hands-on art making and collaborative curriculum design.
 
On this episode, we carry on the idea of a 3rd Space, both in regard to physical and mental spaces. We talk about the idea of the entire city as the school, as well as a possible means to ground the chaos in the event an entire city was set free to play with this idea. Imagining a focus more on a networked individualism (B Wellman), than a standard prescription.

TTT #299 Imagining City as School with Innovation Lab youths, Cristian Buendia, Sierra Goldstein, and Peter Harold 05.23.12

On this episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers, we talk with three young people–Peter, Sierra, and Cristian–who have been working alongside Monika Hardy in the Innovation Lab in Loveland, Colorado. http://labconnections.blogspot.com/p/about.html

They have been experimenting with what happens when you set an individual free, in spaces of permission, with nothing to prove. They are are hoping/planning to experiment this next year with what happens when you set a city free, in spaces of trust, creating gatherings that matter.

We invited Peter, Sierra, and Cristian to join us on Teachers Teaching Teachers to tell us about their talks at a recent TEDx FrontRange event.

TEDx Front Range: Creative Potential

Here are their short bios from http://tedxfrontrange.com:

Peter Harold

Peter Harold

My name is Peter Harold, I’m a 17 year old and I live lovely Loveland, Colorado. I love to sing, sign, laugh and eat. I enjoy the outdoors and love people. My dream is help create a world where everybody’s happy. One of my aspirations is to become fluent enough in many languages to interpret God’s word for those who can’t understand it. I would also love to create music to heal others. Through these things I feel the world could achieve soul peace.

Sierra Goldstein

Sierra Goldstein

My name is Sierra Goldstein, I’m a 14 year old girl, and I live in Loveland Colorado. I love to read, run, kickbox, ride horses, practice/ teach yoga, travel, blog, and eat healthy food. I believe that to achieve your goals, you need a network of mentors and friends to support you on your journey. One of my accomplishments is becoming the youngest yoga instructor in the US. Teaching yoga allows me to share the divinity I have within myself, to others who seek it. My goal for when I am older is to go to Stanford University for my bachelor degree, and then move on to the National College of Natural Medicine to become a doctor in preventative medicine. From the education I receive I want to help people by teaching and giving them the tools and foods to fill their body, mind, and spirit with what they need to survive and flourish.

Cristian Buendia

Cristian Buendia

Cristian a young member of society trying to change the world and his city… Has a passion for soccer and video… loves people and food….
