Rebecca Mead: Neil deGrasse Tyson, the New Guide to the “Cosmos”

Rebecca Mead: Neil deGrasse Tyson, the New Guide to the “Cosmos” | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
Neil deGrasse Tyson, the director of the Hayden Planetarium, at the American Museum of Natural History, is the host of “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,” on Fox, which is a sequel to Carl Sagan’s celebrated PBS series. Tyson’s rhetorical style differs dramatically from Sagan’s. Sagan paid deference to high culture; Tyson’s preferred frame of reference is pop culture. This does not mean that he has unsophisticated tastes. But when explaining science he is most likely to point to a movie such as “A Bug’s Life.” Tyson meets people where they are, rather than seeking to raise them to where he is.

When my 4-year-old told me the other day that she was “ready for princesses,” part of me died. Not just because the day had finally arrived when that virulent meme had infected her, but also because of how utterly powerless I was to contain it. Let me be clear: These...

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 18, 9:44 PM

Finding great educational videos takes time...so I am always excited when I find a list of suggested video. Jackie Gerstein shares her top 11. They range from just over three minutes to about seventeen minutes. Below is  a list of the videos.

* Malala Yousuf Nobel Prize Speech

* Carol Dweck: The Power of Believing You Can Improve

* Sir Ken Robinson: Can Creativity Be Taught

* President Obama on the Whitehouse Maker Faire

* Toxic Culture of Education: Joshua Katz

* The necessity of the student voice | Catherine Zhang

* Rethinking Learning in the Digital Age – Mitchel Resnick

* If I Knew Then: A Letter to Me on My First Day Teaching

* Kid President Throws a Surprise Party for a Retiring Teacher

* Erzah French: Sportskid of the Year

* Malcolm Mitchell Book Club

You will find brief descriptions for most of these videos and I suspect that many will choose to watch all of them over a period of time. You may find one or two that would be great to share at a faculty meeting.

Meg Swecker's curator insight, December 19, 1:03 PM

A 'must view' list of educationally related videos.
